A few weeks ago, Kurt Busch was the bane of NASCAR. After the Nationwide race at Dover, Busch lashed out at a reporter. The incident came weeks after another episode on pit road when Busch tangled with several crewmembers at Darlington. NASCAR placed Busch on probation for the Darlington and the Dover dust up broke the camel’s back; NASCAR suspended Busch and he was forced to sit out the Pocono race.
Needless to say, when he returned the following week at Michigan, Busch was followed by the media like a pack of paparazzi chasing a Hollywood movie star.
Busch finished 30th at Michigan and left relatively unscathed with only a minor confrontation prior to his media visit after finishing third in Saturday’s Nationwide race.
Busch’s current team owner James Finch said while he was on suspension that he wasn’t sure if he would take Busch back.MORE>>>
