NASCAR has released a written statement today, commenting on the granting of a no-contact order to former girlfriend Patricia Driscoll against former Sprint Cup Series champion Kurt Busch.
“NASCAR has been closely following the civil proceedings in Kent County (Del.) Family Court regarding driver Kurt Busch and therefore is aware of the court order issued today,” said the statement. “We now await the full findings of the Commissioner and any actions by the Attorney General of Delaware related to the allegations against Busch.
“As we stated earlier, NASCAR fully recognizes the serious nature of this specific situation and the broader issue of domestic violence. We will continue to gather information and monitor this situation very closely, and we expect our members to conduct themselves properly.”
