STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Jeremy Mayfield's stepmother has sued the suspended NASCAR driver, claiming he made slanderous, false and defamatory statements.

In civil court papers filed Wednesday, Lisa Mayfield argues her stepson falsely accused her of killing his father and taking money from NASCAR. She's seeking compensatory and punitive damages of more than $10,000 each and "further relief as the Court may deem just and proper."

Jeremy Mayfield's comments in several interviews came after his stepmother signed an affidavit claiming she witnessed him taking methamphetamine at least 30 times over seven years. Her affidavit was part of a NASCAR filing asking the federal judge who lifted Mayfield's drug suspension to reinstate the ban.

An appeals court has since ruled in NASCAR's favor to keep Mayfield off the track.
