Kurt Busch Loses First Appeal

Kurt Busch was suspended by NASCAR indefinitely for committing an act of domestic violence. After Busch’s appeal, he will stay suspended.

Busch, who’s domestic violence decision was decided by Kent County Family Court commissioner, appealed the decision. His appeal was denied.

Busch’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, says they will re-appeal.

“We are very disappointed that our appeal was rejected by NASCAR’s appeal panel,” Hardin said in a statement. “We are re-appealing immediately, per the proscribed process. We have significant and strong evidence that contradicts the commissioner’s conclusions.

“In the end we are confident that Kurt will be vindicated and he will be back racing. Until then we will continue to fight on his behalf by ensuring that the entire truth is known.”

Busch is trying to find a way back into NASCAR before the Daytona 500, but even if he wins the appeal there is no guarantee he will have a car to drive.
