Ex-NASCAR driver Mayfield faces home foreclosure

READ MORE:

NEWTON, NC (AP) -- Former race car driver Jeremy Mayfield may lose his home and land through foreclosure in addition to criminal drug and theft charges.

The Hickory Daily Record reports that the home and more than 450 acres owned by Mayfield and his wife are scheduled to be auctioned off on April 30.

Foreclosure documents filed in Catawba County show the couple owes Carolina Farm Credit more than $3 million for loans borrowed in 2006.

Mayfield was suspended from the NASCAR racing circuit in 2009 after allegedly testing positive for methamphetamine. He denied using the drug.

The 42-year-old former driver was in Superior Court on Monday as he faces five felony charges of methamphetamine possession and possession of stolen goods. He faces additional larceny charges in a separate criminal case.
