DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Jeremy Mayfield has missed the deadline to enter his car into Saturday night's race at Daytona International Speedway.
He had an afternoon deadline Thursday to bring the No. 41 Toyota to the track, and it passed with no sign of Mayfield or his race team.
Mayfield's indefinite suspension for a failed drug test was lifted by a federal judge on Wednesday, allowing him to race this weekend. He still can race if another team gives him a seat in a car.
But four team owners who might have considered using Mayfield this weekend have said they aren't interested.
