First let me say that I am a Kurt Busch fan, however...
Being on probation already and given his record of telling off the press, something will come of it. NASCAR will want to make a point since they value the press more than the drivers anyway. Besides, it's not like Kurt has a sponsor for NASCAR to worry about so I'm expecting a suspension.

Let's see; they could make him sit in the middle of a room full of reporters and have to listen to their stupid questions. Or maybe wash their cars????

If all he said was what was reported in this article then there is no issue. Somebody trying to make something out of nothing. What is wrong with telling a reporter he is asking stupid stuff?

True, but telling the reporter that being on probation was keeping him from kicking the reporters ass is what will get him in trouble.

Without question, Kurt Busch is an ass, but that reporter was pushing his buttons very hard. I hope they just put Busch on doubble secret probation for a few weeks. He is entertaining on and off the track. Nascar races are better with him in the race.

He's a truly gifted driver, but it is painful to watch him self-destruct. I can't see Joe Gibbs taking him at this point. He'd diss Coach just like he did Roger Penske and Jack Roush. Besides, Logano is doing better now and Home Depot likes him. Maybe he should start his own team like shrub. He'd get a different perspective on things.

More NASCAR nonsense, and the idiots running the show wonder why Dover was so empty yesterday.

I think given his situation he should be on his best behavior, however I agree that is was no big deal. When Tony said similar things to reports while driving for JGR, did they do anything to him?

he should get NO discipline out of this. what about JJ , Tony and Jr saying DAMM, they did not say they were sorry . no discipline.. reporters are pushy & nasty. how about turning the tables on them and asking personal questions!!!!

I agree that he shouldn't be punished but NASCAR values the press more than the drivers and given Kurt's recent history he will be made an example of. Kurt not having a full time sponsor in the Cup series is going to play into NASCAR's hand.

They should let JJ beat his @ss. He's already done it on the track and if was that easy Big Ear'd Beaker should flop like a fish. LOL Big Brother Bush is a joke!

Did you like that, princess? Did you eat it up like warm apple pie. Hahahaha Too bad your driver didn't win or have a chance. 5x champ is BAAAACK! Awesome performance. You can thank him later for buying a ticket and watching him win the race. BAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!
