Roush Racing suspended Kurt Busch for his actions off the track in his personal car. He has been released for the rest of the racing season after alcohol was detected and he got rowdy with a cop during a traffic stop.
“It’s the last straw for Roush Racing,” team president Geoff Smith said Sunday. “We’re officially retiring as Kurt Busch’s apologists, effective today.” Busch has had a history of incidents on and off the track with NASCAR officials and drivers.
“Obviously, I’m upset. It’s tough. I’m a race car driver, there’s a race today and I’d love to be in the race....That’s the decision they made, and I will live with it,” said Busch.
