Patricia Driscoll, the ex-girlfriend on NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is alleging that she isn’t the only female in the NASCAR community who is the victim of abuse. Driscoll makes the allegation and explains why she decided to seek a restraining order against Busch in an interview on Fox & Friends scheduled to air Friday February 22.

The incident occurred while NASCAR was at Dover International Speedway during the weekend of Sept. 26-28 last year. In November, Driscoll reported the incident to police and filed for the protective order at the same time alleging that Busch was verbally abusive and that he wished he “had a gun so he could kill himself.”

On the Fox cable show Driscoll is speaking out on incident. She alleges that Busch physically attacked her. MORE>>>
