INDYCAR has issued a statement of its own regarding Kurt Busch’s potential presence in the Verizon IndyCar Series, in the wake of Busch’s indefinite suspension from NASCAR issued late Friday.
INDYCAR has not received an application for membership from Kurt Busch, and have no indication that he intends to apply. The series takes domestic violence very seriously, and its rules (including Rule 2.11.3) provide the basis of authority to address personal conduct. INDYCAR is monitoring this situation as it evolves. We will act firmly and strongly in responding to all matters of domestic violence.
