Kurt Busch will remain with Phoenix Racing

Despite a spat of off-track and on-track incidents from Kurt Busch, Phoenix Racing will retain the driver according to tweets from ESPN's Marty Smith, quoting Phoenix Racing's owner James Finch.

Busch had been in hot water recently after verbally abusing a reporter at Dover two weeks ago. In response, NASCAR suspended the driver for this past weekend's race at Pocono, and also extended his probation through the end of the year. Busch originally received probation after clashing with a fellow driver earlier in the season.
