Busch Says "The Truth Got Out"

Kurt Busch has commented on the decision by the Delaware Department of Justice not to file criminal domestic violence charges against him, as a result of allegation leveled by former girlfriend Patricia Driscoll.

“I am grateful that the prosecutors in Delaware listened, carefully considered the evidence, and after a thorough investigation decided to not file criminal charges against me,” said Busch in a written statement. “I wish to thank my family, friends, fans and race team who stood by me throughout this nightmare with their unwavering support.  Thanks also goes to my legal team for making sure that the truth got out and was fully provided to the prosecutors.

“As I have said from the beginning, I did not commit domestic abuse. I look forward to being back in racing as soon as possible and moving on with my life.”

      Nothing should be done except a big Nascar apology & please don't sue us for missing the last two events. Without so much as charges being filed a knee jerk reaction to"Look Good" was decided & it would now seem foolish.
      Can't see how Kurt would lose this lawsuit. For the record I am NOT a Busch fan (either one) & do question their upbringing to have the manners & lack of respect for others they both seem to have. But this says some one who doesn't like or is mad at you can make up a story & get all their revenge on your dime. It also creates massive credibility issues for real victims, not attention grabbing,power seeking (very poor mothering as well-poor kid) vixens. Chevys performance in this is just as politically correct & they also should hang their heads..Just an opinion...Earner

    Glad the truth came out. Hope he is able to put as much of this behind him as possible. It is a shame that the procrss had to have such a drastic effect on his name and livelyhood.

    Ms. Chevy CEO, you owe Kurt an apology and please do so like now, by welcoming him back behind the wheel of the #41 SHR Chevy starting this weekend in Vegas! You along with NASCAR are not above the law, no way the two of you should have taken on the roll of Judge, Jury and Executioner before charges were filed which were never filed, especially in the timely way you all choose to do it, two days before the Daytona 500. You both should be totally embarrassed by your knee jerk reactions! Total shame to Chevy and NASCAR! Only question left, is how much tail tucking are you going to do and when is that tail tucking going to start! Now is not too soon!

    Deciding not to prosecute because there's not enough evidence to obtain a conviction is not the same as innocent. It means the work it would take to argue a conviction isn't worth it to them. He's not being charged. She has her Order of Protection. Let's all move along. And more than everything, let's quit acting like this has besmirched Kurt's good character.

      Last I heard it's innocent until proven guilty. And since there are not charges being brought against Kurt, he seems pretty innocent to me. Not to Nascar though.

      Well usually Kurt has done his own damage..what you are saying it is open season and what ever someone throws a nasty dagger at Kurt, it is automatically the truth and should be believed, I think not.

    I think nascar jumped the gun on this. In nascar your guilty until proven innocent he should be reinstated now.

  6. No it hasn't. The only thing that has changed is the the DA does not believe he can get a UNANIMOUS decision in a criminal Trial. Does not mean that 10 of 11 would find him guilty and one not guilty. That results in a hung jury!!! The family court has said that some percentage over 50% would lead a reasonable person to believe That an act of domestic violence occurred.

    Kurt Busch may be a great race car driver, but I am surprised at the out falling of support for him and the disdain for NASCAR. Brian France continues to impress me...he has shown great compassion for Kurt Busch while Kurt has not shown much respect for NASCAR, it's fans or it's media.

    NASCAR has given him an opportunity to reenter the sport that he has continually brought shame to. He has been less than a role model for young children and has become untouchable by sponsors...his last two rides where by people who loved the sport so much they sunk their money into it....they couldn't get funding. Kurt can drive, but he can't represent.

    NASCAR is giving him an opportunity to become a better person, they have shown compassion and forgiveness...but for once, they are making him earn it. My comments have nothing to do with Patricia Driscoll....I do not believe her story, and I don't think the world has heard the last of her...this has everything to do with Kurt being so vulnerable that he was an easy target...and he took NASCAR for a bad adventure again. Kurt has had more than three strikes and he's still at the plate, he should consider himself lucky and finally learn a lesson.

    What I see as utterly sad, there are women who are totally victims in every way possible of DV. On the flip side of that, women like this one know how to work the system, with the backing of women's organizations that want to truly help the real victims of DV. The courts today issues this and that if a male sneezes in the women's direction (CYA). What is wrong from the lowly court where a "guy" NOT A JUDGE said 'yeah he might have done it' (or whatever the verbiage was) is that his livelihood was impacted and could be impacted without any ownership of his lack of livelihood , the accuser gets away scott free and the victim emotionally and financially must pick up the pieces. Why does she get to go on her merry way? SHE NEEDS TO PAY AND PAY Why doesn't that happen? Because her body parts are different from his? I think so and I think this disturbed woman knew exactly what she was doing but the dumb men put in position of power were..dumb men again!!!!!!!!! I am a woman and have seen this behavior too much. The stakes are too high and these woman know it, guys are just too dumb to see it. Oh I could go on..Sick stuff imo. Nascar and Chevy, shame on them.

    Busch just can't help himself. He's a jerk. Talented yes, but a complete utter and total jerk. Some serious intensive psychological help is in order before he returns. He's got the world on a string as a top NASCAR driver ....and he can't keep it between the ditches. Sad.
