Saving Abel debuts “Drowning (Face Down)” video featuring NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield

Check out the newest video from rock band Saving Abel. The video for “Drowning (Face Down)” features NASCAR drivers Jeremy Mayfield as well as cameos from Clint Bowyer, Carl Edwards, Martin Treux Jr. & Brian Vickers.

The video is the third video from the band’s gold debut self-titled album. It depicts Mayfield as an aspiring racer in pursuit of his racing dreams. The video was shot at Bristol Motor Speedway and at Mayfield Motorsports in Harrisburg, N.C. Including in Mayfield’s wind tunnel.

“It was awesome and I can’t wait until it comes out,” said Jeremy Mayfield, who finished 32nd during Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway. “Just being a part of that was just cool for me. Those guys are great guys and I’m glad to see them coming up. I didn’t really know them that well until we did the video and they have a lot of fun. It’s funny how our story kind of fit their song and worked perfect for their video.”

A five-time Sprint Cup race winner, Mayfield hasn’t had a full-time ride in more than two years and decided to start his own team a month before the 2009 season began. Mirroring the music video’s theme, Mayfield has started three races this year, including racing his way into the Daytona 500, and is trying to recapture some of his past successes.

“We had a blast shooting the ‘Drowning (Face Down)’ video with Jeremy Mayfield and the other NASCAR drivers as we’re all big NASCAR fans, said Saving Abel frontman Jared Weeks. We especially love how Jeremy’s real life story mirrors the character he plays in the video.”
