Chevrolet vice president of Motorsports and Performance Vehicles, Jim Campbell, has released an official statement adressing Kurt Busch’s indefinite suspension from NASCAR competition for domestic assault on his ex-girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll.
“Chevrolet has suspended its relationship with Kurt Busch indefinitely. We will continue to monitor the events surrounding Mr. Busch and are prepared to take additional action if necessary,” Campbell said.
The automaker decided to drop its sponsorship almost immediately after a court ruled it was likely “by a preponderance of the evidence,” that Busch had committed an act of domestic violence. A NASCAR statement released following the suspension stated Busch’s alleged actions were “detrimental to stock car racing.”
