Personal Life

Ashley is the only daughter of former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield, in which Ashley is very close to in terms of a family relationship. Ever since Jeremy's suspension in May of 2009 due to failing a drug test in which people were accusing him of taking drugs (mainly Methamphedamines) Ashley had stood by her father's side, believing him over NASCAR in where because of Ashley's stance in the whole situation left Ashley's step-grandmother Lisa saying an accusation about Ashley was also taking Methamphedamines because Jeremy told her to, but NASCAR was doing nothing in terms of testing her for the substance. Ashley had immediately denied it and even allowed NASCAR to test her, but NASCAR hasn't capitalized on the moment to test her.
