CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Jeremy Mayfield has apologized for blaming his father's death on his estranged stepmother.
The public apology was part of a settlement in a slander lawsuit Lisa Mayfield filed against the suspended NASCAR driver and Lisa Mayfield.
Mayfield still has a wrongful death lawsuit pending against his stepmother.
Terry Mayfield's Sept. 5, 2007 death was ruled a suicide in two separate investigations. But after Lisa Mayfield testified in a NASCAR affidavit that she had witnessed her stepson use methamphetamines, Jeremy Mayfield accused her in interviews of killing his father.
Mayfield has been suspended since May 2009 for failing a random drug test.
