Jeremy Mayfield was released, effectively immediately, by Penske Racing. No replacement driver for the No. 12 Ford has been announced for this weekend's race at the Lowe's Motor Speedway at Charlotte.

Penske Racing has no comment at this time. There was no comment from Jeremy Mayfield either.

Mayfield had been in the car since 1996 when the team was formed by Michael Kranefuss. Roger Penske purchased part of the team in 1998, and in 2000 became full owner.

While Mayfield has had some success in past years, but was 22nd in points this year with only seven top-ten finishes.
