Kurt Busch

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NASCAR announced Wednesday that, effective immediately, the indefinite suspension of Kurt Busch has been lifted, WSOC reported.

Busch is eligible to return to NASCAR racing under indefinite probation subject to additional mandatory requirements that include but are not limited to participation in a treatment program and full compliance with any judicial requirements placed upon him.

The decision to lift the suspension was made by NASCAR after Busch complied with all requirements in its reinstatement program, completed the mandatory behavioral assessment sessions; and the behavioral health care expert who conducted the sessions recommended to NASCAR that Kurt Busch be allowed to return to competition.

Busch now will undergo additional steps to address the behavior for which he was penalized.
