NASCAR suspends Jeremy Clements for 'intolerable and insensitive remark'

Thursday February 28th, 2013

NASCAR has indefinitely suspended Nationwide Series drive Jeremy Clements for making an "intolerable and insensitive remark" during the course of an interview, according to senior vice president of racing operations Steve O'Donnell.

NASCAR announced the suspension was a violation of its code of conduct, but provided no other details.

Clements finished 33rd in Saturday at Daytona after dropping out with an oil line problem.

The suspension and lack of details from NASCAR created speculation on Twitter as to what Clements said in the unspecified interview.
