CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A judge has set a hearing for Wednesday to determine whether to overturn NASCAR's suspension of driver Jeremy Mayfield for a failed drug test.

Mayfield's attorneys asked a judge Friday to rescind his suspension, saying NASCAR did not follow its drug-testing policies and left the driver with no way to prove his innocence.

NASCAR suspended Mayfield on May 9 after he failed a random drug
test. Mayfield was in court Friday.

Mayfield's attorneys say NASCAR told the driver he tested positive for amphetamines, but they say Mayfield was taking Adderall for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Claritin-D for allergies.

But NASCAR says the test also found "a dangerous, illegal, banned substance."
