Kurt Busch’s Latest Suspension Can Cost Him His Ride For The Reminder Of The Season

Kurt Busch has been suspended by NASCAR for his latest meltdown in Dover.

Busch has been placed on suspension and will not be running in the Pocono 400 on June 10th. He was already on probabtion from his actions at Darlington, and none of this helps him in his quest for a full time ride next season.

In the Cup Series Busch races in the No. 51 car for James Finch but ESPN’s David Newton has reported that Car Owner Finch is looking for possible replacements for Busch.

Finch took a chance on Busch by signing him to a one year contract, but with Busch’s latest troubles is causing Finch to think twice about the one year contract. According to ESPN, Finch is thinking about getting Brian Vickers or David Reutimann to drive the car at Pocono.

Reutimann is already driving the No.10 car this weekend.

Busch can race again begining on June 17th but if Finch does decide to break ties with Busch, a list of drivers are already being mentioned as possible replacements.

Finch told ESPN that he will talk with Busch over the next couple of days about their future.

“If he’s going to kill himself I’m not going to be in the airplane with him,” Finch told ESPN in a phone call. “If that’s what he’s planning on doing, I am going to get out.”
