NASCAR driver Kurt Busch leaves the ISC offices after a suspension appeal on February 21, 2015 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Busch was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR after a no-contact order was issued against him for alleged abuse against his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll.

NASCAR has denied Kurt Busch’s appeal of his indefinite suspension.  A three member panel heard the appeal Saturday in the NASCAR office complex across the street from the Daytona International Speedway sight of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Daytona 500. Busch however indicated through his lawyer that he will continue to appeal until all avenues are exhausted.

NASCAR suspended Busch late Friday for an indefinite period after a judge in Delaware issued his brief concerning the issuance of a protective order earlier in the week. The judge’s brief stated that Busch indeed “committed an act of domestic violence” against his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll during an incident Sept. 26 at Dover International Speedway. The ruling also stated that Driscoll had “bruising and substantial and prolonged pain to her head, neck and throat.”

Monday the court ruled in Driscoll’s favor and issued a protective order. MORE>>>
