Kurt Busch Fired By Penske Racing

Penske Racing has elected not to bring Kurt Busch back to drive the No. 22 car next season, according to Jim Utter of ThatsRacin.com.

The decision comes following an obscene tirade during the finale of the Nascar Sprint Cup Series at Homestead-Miami Speedway, during which Busch verbally berated ESPN racing commentator Dr. Jerry Punch after making obscene gestures at him.  The incident was captured on video and posted online, resulting in a fine for Busch and a written apology from Penske Racing.

According to Utter, an official announcement on Busch's fate is expected on Monday.  It is unclear who Penske Racing could turn to as a replacement for Busch, nor where Busch could resurface following this turn of events.
