NASCAR has cleared driver Kurt Busch to return to competition. NASCAR released a statement just after noon Wednesday although he will remain under indefinite probation and be subject to additional mandatory requirements that NASCAR said includes, but are not limited to participation in a treatment program and full compliance with any judicial requirements placed upon him.
The statement said that the decision to lift the suspension was made by NASCAR after Kurt Busch: Complied with all requirements in its reinstatement program; Completed the mandatory behavioral assessment sessions; and the behavioral health care expert who conducted the sessions recommended to NASCAR that Kurt Busch be allowed to return to competition. NASCAR said Busch now will undergo additional steps to address the behavior for which he was penalized.
Last Thursday the Delaware Attorney General’s office said that no charges will be filed in the domestic battery complaint involving his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll. The complaint was originally filed by Driscoll last November. Driscoll won a no-contact order involving Busch in a separate civil action in a Delaware court last month. NASCAR suspended the driver in February MORE>>>
