NASCAR announced Wednesday morning that driver Jeremy Clements has been reinstated. The NASCAR Nationwide Series driver was placed on indefinite suspension from NASCAR on Feb. 27 for violating the sanctioning body’s Code of Conduct policy.
“As part of the requirements for reinstatement, Jeremy Clements participated in an individualized program with Dr. Richard Lapchick and his staff at the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “In Dr. Lapchick’s judgment, Jeremy has successfully completed the program. We’re pleased that Jeremy has taken these important steps and will return to racing starting this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway.”
According to NASCAR when they handed down the suspension, the offense was a result of remarks made during an interview. MORE>>>
