Mayfield Motorsports sells cars, haulers

John Carter said before Sunday’s race he bought a hauler and six race cars from suspended driver Jeremy Mayfield, who was down to inventory only in his role as a team owner.

Carter used one of the cars acquired from Mayfield Motorports in Sunday’s race for Terry Labonte, who finished 33rd, six laps off the pace.

Labonte has a deal to drive five races that could increase with sponsorship.

Mayfield is suspended from NASCAR for failing a May 1 random drug test. He’s been fighting the suspension through the court system, and has indicated he doesn’t plan on racing again.
