Kyle Busch has been parked by NASCAR in response to Busch "aggressive driving" in Friday night's truck race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Busch had wrecked KHI driver Ron Hornaday while the race was under caution following a lap 14 incident between the two drivers on the track.

Busch had already been parked by NASCAR for the remainder of the truck race following the incident, and on Saturday morning NASCAR president Mike Helton announced that Busch would also be parked for the weekend's Nationwide and Sprint Cup races.

"After a good deal conversation and discussion, NASCAR decided to maintain the parked position for the balance of the weekend," Helton said. "Kyle will not be participating today and tomorrow in Texas."

The news should make Hornaday feel a little better. "He's got to be parked. They did it to Harvick at Martinsville," said Hornaday, referencing an episode from 2002. "If they don't park [Kyle] for the Cup race and the Nationwide race... We'll see what NASCAR does, and if they don't handle it right, I'll be at his house Monday morning."

KHI owner/driver Kevin Harvick won Friday night's race, but the team owner wasn't happy to see his other driver in the race wrecked. Ron Hornaday was contending for the championship in the truck series, but after finishing 34th following the wreck his title hopes are finished. After the race, Harvick said of Busch, "He's going to grow up, or he's going to have some swollen eyes."

For his part, Busch didn't apologize after the incident on Friday night. "I've been wrecked four weeks in a row, and finally I just had enough of it. I'm sorry it was Ron Hornaday. He's going for a championship, but the fact of the matter is you can't place all the blame on one person. There was two people that got into it to begin with, and there was two people that ended it."

Busch is currently ranked seventh in the Sprint Cup standings. He was already out of title contention, and he'll likely lose a few more positions after being parked for Sunday's Cup race.

At least Busch can be glad he won't have to worry about facing an irate Hornaday or Harvick at his front door Monday morning.
