Kurt Busch is in trouble again. The former NASCAR champion has been known to show his anger on many occasions; he’s been fired from high profile NASCAR teams on at least two occasions after angry outbursts. And NASCAR has fined him on more than one occasion.
This time however, it’s much more serious.
The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup season started out with a great deal of promise for Busch. The newly signed driver with Stewart-Haas Racing won early in the season and made NASCAR’s Chase. He also made a high profile appearance outside of NASCAR taking on the racing double on the Indy 500 and the Coke 600 at Charlotte in May. He finished 6th at Indy garnering Rookie of the Year honors. Photos from that day featured not only Busch but also the same pretty blonde woman along with a young boy that had been seen with him for some time. I could see them from the press box at Charlotte Motor Speedway as they exited a helicopter in the frontstretch grass. The couple held hands and Busch waved to the crowd who were enthusiastically applauding him. The little boy was close by; all were smiling. Busch, who was married for five year and suffered through a tumultuous divorce, seemed to finally be in a good place, on top of the world. MORE>>>
