Kurt Busch Fired By Penske Racing

Publish date:

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.
