Do not mess with women, children, or NASCAR. That is the primary message I have been hearing.Having the Ray Rice settlement may make this interesting, but remember rule number 3 - DON'T MESS WITH NASCAR OR THEY WILL BLACK-BALL YOU.And that is not a racist term (Liberals) - ostracizing someone socially.
Once again under the Family Courts ruling, All NASCAR drivers should be evaluated for domestic abuse before being allowed to race. Even though Driscoll lied and the Family Court said she did, but because he is an athlete with high testosterone he most likely committed the act just like every other driver would likely commit the act because of their short tempers they show on the track weekend and week out. And this is what NASCAR is clinging too. Sad. Spikes.
I'm going to assume that what you guys have said here is absolutely true. Driscoll has committed perjury, filed a false police report, and slander. And admitted to it. And this judge/arbitrator has found Mr Busch to be guilty by association. (pro athlete, stressful occupation, etc) Now, my question is by what statute does Nascar hang it hat on to make this suspention stick ???? Conduct unbecoming/detramental to the sport ?? There HAS to be a rule that the Frances' are pointing to. What is it ???????????????

The suspension was BS, and if no criminal charges are going to be levied then not lifting the suspension is more BS.
NASCAR's Higdon Says Sanctioning Body "Had To Act" By Suspending Busch: NASCAR vice president of Integrated Marketing Communications David Higdon told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio's "The Morning Drive" today that NASCAR had no choice but to suspend driver Kurt Busch in the aftermath of a Delaware Family Court's decision to grant a no-contact order to former girlfriend Patricia Driscoll. Higdon said NASCAR's decision to suspend Busch during Speedweeks 2015 at Daytona was "based on what we heard from the Commissioner in the Family Court of the state of Delaware."Asked about the timing of the decision - just days before the season-opening Daytona 500 -- Higdon said, "We were called to task for waiting like we did. We utilized the patience that was necessary to gather the appropriate information. Then, unfortunately, the timing hit us during the Daytona 500 where Kurt received a court order from the Family Court of the state of Delaware. That was a 25-page document that we simply couldn't ignore. It was a very clear case made by that court. When you have a legitimate court in Delaware make a statement like they did, it would have been ridiculous for us to not act. We had been very patient over three months. We were dragged through lot of mud during that period, but we also felt that it was only fair to the driver that the facts come through. When they ultimately did come... we had to act. We had to make a decision (and) it was unanimous among those involved in that decision."Yesterday, the Delaware Department of Justice announced that it would not file criminal domestic assault charges against Busch, citing insufficient evidence to prosecute. "We knew there was a chance that the Attorney General could go one way or the other," said Higdon, "(and) the Department of Justice was very clear in their statement. They determined that admissible evidence and available witnesses would likely be inefficient to meet the burden of establishing beyond a reasonable doubt that he committed a crime. They were very clear on that, just as the Commissioner in the Family Court was very clear that they were satisfied with the evidence that was presented at the trial that there was a case here.''Higdon repeated the sanctioning body's earlier statement that the decision by Delaware's Department of Justice not charge Busch "certainly is something that is removing a significant impediment to his reinstatement.'' He did not provide a timeline for Busch's return, or comment on conditions the sanctioning body has placed on his reinstatement.(See more quotes/notes at Godfather Motorsports and NBCSports)(3-6-2015)
It's just a continual embarrassment for NASCAR to continue defending their actions, IMO. As far as Kurt coming back, I think SHR will be fine with having him back in the 41 car. The Chevy thing is the biggest issue at this stage.
