NASCAR Suspends Kurt Busch For Recent Tirade
Kurt Busch just can't seem to control his anger as he has been suspended by NASCAR for this weekends races in Pocono for his verbal abuse of a reporter this past Saturday.
Brian Noe posted the video of Busch verbally abusing the reporter saying his current probation for an incident at Darlington last month,"refrains me from not beating the (expletive) out of you right now because you ask me stupid questions. But since I'm on probation, I suppose that's improper to say as well". NASCAR said this tirade was in violation of Busch's probation and have suspended him from any activities in this weekend's action at Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania.
This suspension adds to a long line of incidents stemming from Busch's anger issues. He was fired from Rousch Racing in 2005 after Jack Rousch got sick of his antics. Last year Busch was heard spewing a rage filled rant on his team's radio during a race. He had words with reporters in a September race in Richmond and most notably cursed out ESPN reporter Dr. Jerry Punch which many believe cost him his job with Penske Racing.
