NASCAR has suspended driver Kurt Busch until June 13 of this year and extended his NASCAR probation until Dec. 31 for his actions following the NASCAR Nationwide Series race June 2 at Dover International Speedway.

The suspension means Busch will not be able to participate in this weekends races; the Sprint Cup race at Pocono and the Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Busch again let his anger loose last Saturday following his fourth place finish in the Nationwide Series race. Busch was asked by Sporting News reporter Bob Pockrass if that probation had any effect on how he raced driver Justin Allgaier. Busch and Allgaier had come together during the race, with no aftereffects. Pockrass wanted to know if that probation had restrained Busch somewhat. MORE>>>
