Kurt Busch denied final appeal, remains indefinitely suspended

Kurt Busch’s final appeal has been denied by NASCAR’s Final Appeal Officer.

Rusty Hardin, the driver’s attorney, stated to the media, “We will continue to exhaust every procedural and legal remedy we have available to us until Kurt Busch is vindicated. We intend to continue to call attention…on Mrs. [Patricia] Driscoll’s true character, motivations and history.”

The verdict, which came down late Saturday night, keeps Busch’s indefinite suspension intact. NASCAR announced this ruling Friday afternoon after news from the Delaware court claimed that Busch committed acts of domestic violence against ex-girlfriend Driscoll in September.

The National Motorsports Final Appeal Officer, Bryan Moss, made the following decision, “[Busch] violated the Rules set forth in the penalty notice and the decision of the National Motorsports Appeals Panel was correct.”

NASCAR has stated they will let Busch know the steps to his reinstatement.
