Kurt Busch Will Race in Phoenix This Weekend
NASCAR has reinstated Kurt Busch and he will be behind the wheel in Phoenix this weekend for the Camping World.com 500.
After being suspended indefinitely by NASCAR in February for domestic violence against his girlfriend, NASCAR has cleared Busch to race this weekend.
In a statement Wednesday, NASCAR officials said-
“As we stated last week, the elimination of the possibility of criminal charges removed a significant impediment to Kurt Busch’s return to full status as a NASCAR member,” Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president, said in a statement. “We therefore have decided to move him to indefinite probation and waive the Chase requirement. He has fully complied with our reinstatement program during his suspension and the health care expert who conducted his evaluation recommended his immediate return. "
Busch was out for a total of three races.
