NASCAR indefinitely suspended Nationwide Series driver Jeremy Clements Wednesday for violating the sanctioning body’s code of conduct.

Clements finished 33rd in Saturday’s Nationwide race at Daytona International Speedway. During an interview Clements said something to a reporter, what that was hasn’t been released.  But according to NASCAR Clements violated Sections 7-5 (NASCAR’s Code of Conduct) and 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing).

“During the course of an interview, Jeremy Clements made an intolerable and insensitive remark,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “NASCAR has a Code of Conduct that’s explicitly spelled out in the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book. We fully expect our entire industry to adhere to that Code.” MORE>>>
