Kurt Busch to follow guidelines toward NASCAR reinstatement
(AP) Kurt Busch has agreed to follow NASCAR’s recommended guidelines to be eligible for eventual reinstatement.
The 2004 champion was indefinitely suspended Feb. 20 after a Delaware judge said he believed Busch likely committed an act of domestic violence against an ex-girlfriend and there was a “substantial likelihood” of him doing it again.
Busch lost two rounds of appeals to be reinstated before the season-opening Daytona 500, and has missed the first two races of the season.
On Monday, NASCAR communications vice president David Higdon said Busch “has agreed to our terms and conditions that must be met before he is eligible for consideration for reinstatement of his NASCAR license.”
The specific guidelines Busch must follow have not been disclosed.
