HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Kurt Busch’s attorney lashed out in response to a California congresswoman lobbying NASCAR and Stewart-Haas Racing to suspend Busch for the season finale Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., wrote a letter to NASCAR and the race team and issued a news release requesting that Busch be suspended over allegations of domestic assault by Busch’s former girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll. . .
“If every time somebody made an allegation against a congresswoman or a congressman, and they were then to be suspended from their office until the investigation was concluded, we’d have an empty Capitol building,” Busch lawyer Rusty Hardin said in a phone interview with Sporting News.
