NASCAR driver, Jeremy Mayfield, was born on May 27, 1969 in Owensboro, Kentucky. Jeremy Mayfield will drive for Billy Ballew Motorsports in the Camping World Truck Series in 2009. He is married to his wife Shana, and they own three bulldogs and two pugs.
Jeremy Mayfield began racing in his hometown of Owensboro, racing BMX bicycles. He then proceeded to race go-karts at local short tracks, moving to Nashville Speedway USA at the age of 19. He soon went to work for Sadler Bros. Racing as a fabricator, and became their driver, winning Late Model Rookie of the Year at Kentucky Motor Speedway in 1987. In 1993, he joined the ARCA series, and was named Rookie of the Year. He also made his Cup debut at the Mello Yello 500, starting 30th and finishing 29th in the #95 Ford Thunderbird sponsored by Mac Tools.
In 1994, Jeremy Mayfield declared he would run for NASCAR Winston Cup Series Rookie of the Year, and signed to drive the Sadler Bros.' 95 Shoney's Ford. Unfortunately, he struggled heavily in the 95, and was released. He signed to drive the #02 for T.W. Taylor sponsored by Children's Miracle Network for four races, before completing the year in the #98 Fingerhut Ford for Cale Yarborough. He ran twenty starts in his inaugural season, his best finish a 19th at Rockingham. In 1995, he stayed with Yarborough full-time with new sponsorship from RCA, and had an eighth place run at the Miller Genuine Draft 500, and had a 31st place finish in the points standings after qualifying for 27 out of 31 races. The next season, he had two top-fives and earned his first career pole at the DieHard 500. Later that season, he was released and replaced John Andretti in the #37 Kmart/Little Caesar's Ford owned by Michael Kranefuss. Mayfield ended the year 26th in points.
Mayfield returned to the Kranefuss team in 1997. He had eight top tens, including two fifth-place runs, and finished a then career-high 13th place in points. After the season, Kranefuss sold part of the team to Penske Racing South, and the team's identity was switched, with a new number (#12) and new sponsor in Mobil 1. Mayfield took the points lead early in the season, and won his first career race at the Pocono 500. At the end of the season, he was seventh in points. He was unable to replicate his success in 1999, and dropped four spots in the standings, despite twelve top-tens. In 2000, he won four poles and two races. One of the poles, however, was at the DieHard 500, and the car was found to have violated the rules with an illegal fuel substance, and penalties resulted in the team earning -25 points from the race (his 126 points, earned by finishing 14th and leading a lap, were offset by the 151 point penalty NASCAR handed down). Later, while practicing for the Brickyard 400, he crashed hard into the wall. He suffered a concussion, and was forced to miss the next two races. He finished 24th in points that season.
Jeremy Mayfield began 2001 with two consecutive third-place finishes, but his performance fell off, and was released after the Protection One 400. He sat out the rest of the season after signing a new deal.
In 2002, Mayfield signed to Evernham Motorsports, replacing Casey Atwood. In his first year, Mayfield had just four top-tens and finished 26th in points. He rebounded some in 2003, winning the pole at the Aaron's 499 and posting 12 top-tens, finishing nineteenth in points. Finally in 2004, Mayfield returned to victory lane at the Chevy Rock and Roll 400 earning his team the 9th spot in the inaugural Chase for the Cup, and finished tenth in points. For a while, winning a race to get into the Chase was referred by the moniker "pulling a Jeremy Mayfield". In 2005, he won the GFS Marketplace 400, and finished ninth in the standings. In August of 2006 he was released from Evernham after his team fell out of the top-35 in owner points, and replaced by Bill Elliott and then Elliott Sadler.
Mayfield signed a contract with Bill Davis Racing for 2007, driving the #36 Toyota Camry with primary sponsorship from 360 OTC. Associate sponsors include World Wrestling Entertainment, the TNT television network, and rock band Kiss. He ran a total of 13 races for Bill Davis Racing in 32 attempts with a best finish of 22nd at Kansas Speedway. In August 2007, it was announced that Mayfield and Davis would part ways at the end of the season. Later in the season, he would take over driving the #66 Best Buy car for Haas CNC Racing starting with Atlanta 2007. Late in 2007, he and teammate Scott Riggs would switch rides with Mayfield ending up in the #70 car for the 2008 season.
Mayfield completed seven races in the #70 with a best finish of sixteenth before he was released from the team. He would complete one additional race at Dover in the #40 Target Dodge, filling in for the injured Dario Franchitti. He would start tenth and finished twenty-fifth.
On August 8, 2006, Jeremy Mayfield learned through NASCAR.com that he was not placed onto the entry list for Watkins Glen, instead replaced by former Evernham driver Bill Elliott. With discussions of a move to Bill Davis Racing by Mayfield in the past month or two before this, it seemed likely that Jeremy would be released to make this transition sooner than later.  Evernham later confirmed that Mayfield had been released from his contract after making comments about Evernham not being at the track often. Mayfield later stated that the problems with the 19 car stemmed from lack of attention from the team owner due to a "close personal relationship" with developmental driver Erin Crocker. Mayfield stated that Evernham was not with the Cup cars most weeks because of the extensive, and uncommon among other teams, attention that he was giving Crocker and her #98 truck team. Evernham later admitted that he was seriously involved with Crocker.
Mayfield has 36 career Busch starts. To date he has five top tens, his best finish being a fourth at Rockingham in 2003. He has also three Craftsman Truck Series starts, with a best finish of 6th at the 2003 Hardee's 250 for Green Light Racing. After his release from Evernham in 2006, he drove for Billy Ballew Motorsports in a pair of truck races.
