Kurt Busch apology rings hollow

NASCAR suspended Kurt Busch Monday. The suspension is in force through June 13 meaning Busch will be forced to set out all on-track activities this weekend. The suspension comes after Busch’s latest angry outburst this past weekend at Dover International Speedway. Busch was already on probation following an incident at Darlington Raceway last month.

Busch cursed out a respected NASCAR reporter after Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race when the reporter asked him if his Darlington probation forced him to race any differently. The video of the incident soon went viral on the internet and Monday NASCAR handed down the suspension; the sanctioning body also extended Busch’s probation until the end of the year. Shortly after the ruling came down, Busch issued a simple, if not terse, apology. MORE>>>
