According to an order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Graham Mullen on Monday, Jeremy Mayfield's request to reopen his lawsuit against NASCAR was denied. Mayfield alleged that NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France had him black flagged in the 2006 Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for no legitimate reason, and that was the reason he thought the case should have been reopened.

"This litigation has been extraordinarily and unnecessarily contentious," Mullen said in his written decision.

A ruling was made in May of this year to dismiss all of Mayfield's claims against NASCAR. The squabble between NASCAR and the former driver began in 2009 when Mayfield was suspended indefinitely from the sport after testing positive for methamphetamines. In the time since, NASCAR has stood behind its testing procedures, while Mayfield continuously claims that the tests he was subjected to were erroneous.

The ruling in May 2010 stated that Mayfield gave up his write to sue by signing all the waivers required to compete in NASCAR. Mayfield later asked that the case be reopened, because he had new evidence. Mullen denied the request. Mayfield again requested in September that the case be reopened, based on some of France's former in-laws claiming that they heard France's order to black flag Mayfield in 2006 at Indianapolis. France disputed the claim with travel records showing that he wasn't with his in-laws on the day in question.

According to Mullen, another deciding factor in his refusal to grand Mayfield's request to reopen the case was Mayfield's lawsuit against former NASCAR team owner Ray Evernham a few years ago after Evernham fired Mayfield.
