David Reutimann will replace suspended driver Kurt Busch this weekend for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono.  While the race is currently a one-off deal, Busch’s team owner isn’t certain he will allow Busch to return to the team.

NASCAR suspended Busch Monday after he became verbally abusive to a reporter last Saturday at Dover. Busch was already on probation stemming from an incident at Darlington. That probation was also extended.

Reutimann normally races the Tommy Baldwin Racing entry, but will take over the Phoenix Racing machine in Busch’s forced absence. MORE>>>
