NASCAR has suspended driver Kurt Busch until June 13 and extended his NASCAR probation until Dec. 31 for his actions following the NASCAR Nationwide Series race June 2 at Dover International Speedway. Kurt Busch violated the NASCAR rulebook section covering "actions detrimental to stock car racing; violation of probation; verbal abuse to a media member." He had previously been placed on NASCAR probation on May 15 for his actions during the May 12 race at Darlington Raceway. The suspension until June 13 will prohibit Busch from participating in the NASCAR races at Pocono Raceway, but will allow him to participate in testing and racing at Michigan International Speedway. That probation was originally scheduled to end July 25 but has now been extended through the end of this year. Busch was caught on film reacting negatively to a question from a reporter concerning how he acts on probation. SPEED video shows that when Sporting News' reporter Bob Pockrass followed up with a question about how the probation was affecting his racing, Busch replied, "It refrains me from not beating the **** 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. If you could talk about racing things, we could talk about racing things, Bob." Pockrass said he was talking about racing, before Busch continued, "It's not racing. You're in this just to start stuff. That's all you're out here for."
