NASCAR Sprint Cup series Travis Wade Kvapil, currently the driver of the #93 car in the Sprint Cup Series, and his wife had a domestic dispute last night. Kvapil was arrested and charged with assault on a female and false imprisonment. There are certain stereotypes against NASCAR drivers, NASCAR fans, the NASCAR community etc. Kvapil did nothing to fight those stereotypes. He fought his wife instead. According to the Mooresville, North Carolina Police Department, Kvapil was released from the Iredell County Jail under a $1,000 unsecured bond after a scheduled court appearance. It’s not known if he has an attorney. Here’s the kicker though, via WBTV 3: Kvapil drives for BK Racing, who also has driver David Reutimann. He is currently 31st in the NASCAR Sprint Cup standings. BK Racing posted a photo of Kvapil and Reutimann’s race cars on Twitter around 1 p.m. on Wednesday showing both cars with ribbons supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness. Yep, can’t make this stuff up. h/t Fark Paul M. Banks is the owner of The Sports Bank.net, an affiliate of Fox Sports. An analyst for 95.7 The Fan and 1620 The Zone, he also writes for Chicago Now.
