CATAWBA, N.C. -- Months after he was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR for alleged drug use, Jeremy Mayfield is putting his 475-acre estate on the auction block.

Today's sale includes Mayfield's 13,000 square-foot mansion which has been gutted for renovations and remains unfinished, said Will Lilly, an auctioneer for Iron Horse Auctions.

"This is a tough day, but we'll get through it,” said Judy Gordon, Jeremy Mayfield's mom.  "The toughest part is that Jeremy loved that house.”

Mayfield and his wife, Shana, have been living in a 3,000 square-foot home that is also being offered for sale in the auction.

Other items up for bid include a fleet of go-karts purchased from a Myrtle Beach amusement park, dozens of rifles from Mayfield's gun collection, autographed memorabilia, and a Prevost motor home which was originally purchased for $1.4 million.

Mayfield fought his suspension from the race track which was upheld by a judge.

He's also being sued by his stepmother, who he has blamed for his father's death in 2007.

The auction will be held on Mayfield's estate at 6397 Hudson Chapel Road.
