CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The attorney for Jeremy Mayfield says the
NASCAR driver was tested twice for drugs on Monday - once at an
independent laboratory and once at his home by NASCAR.

John Buric says "a group of people" went to Mayfield's home in
Catawba County, N.C., on Monday evening and watched him provide a urine sample.

Earlier that day, Buric says Mayfield also provided a sample at
an independent lab.

Mayfield was suspended May 9 for failing a random drug test
eight days earlier. NASCAR has said he tested positive for
methamphetamine, but Mayfield has denied using the illegal drug.

Last week, a judge overturned the drug suspension and cleared
Mayfield to return to the track. On Wednesday, NASCAR filed an
appeal with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, asking it ban
Mayfield.
