PLAYERS: Jeremy Clements
Jeremy Clements, a driver in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body’s Code of Conduct. On Feb. 23 at Daytona International Speedway, Clements was found to have violated Sections 7-5 (NASCAR’s Code of Conduct) and 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing). “During the course of an interview, Jeremy Clements made an intolerable and insensitive remark,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “NASCAR has a Code of Conduct that’s explicitly spelled out in the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book. We fully expect our entire industry to adhere to that Code.” Clements finished the Drive for COPD 300 from Daytona International Speedway last Saturday in 33rd place after dropping out early due to an oil line issue. Clements currently drives for his own team and there has been no release from JCR regarding a replacement for this weekend’s race at Phoenix International Raceway.
