CUP: Top 10 Stories – No. 5, Kurt Busch The Outlaw
Fox News - about 4 years
There have always been two sides to Kurt Busch: The wheelman who won Jack Roush a NASCAR Sprint Cup championship in 2004 and 24 races in his career, and the contentious, aggressive personality who has repeatedly gotten himself in trouble off the track.Both were on display in 2012.Busch and Penske Racing, his home since 2006, parted ways at the end of 2011 following Busch’s obscenity-laced tirade against an ESPN reporter at the season-ending race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.By that point, all the top NASCAR Sprint Cup seats for 2012 already were spoken for, so Busch signed with Phoenix Racing, a small, one-car team with only about 15 employees.

Bowyer, Gordon renew Martinsville familiarity Associated Press Copyright 2012 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Updated 4:39 p.m., Sunday, October 28, 2012 In the spring on the 0.526-mile oval, Bowyer's daring late move to the inside of turn one wiped out himself, Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, costing all three of them a chance at the victory. Hamlin finished 33rd, and saw his championship hopes wiped away, after an electrical problem sent him to the garage. Well I slowed down but the car started pushing when I slowed down, so I just picked it back up to where when I'd go in and turn it, it would go around the race track and not try to go into the wall. [...] he kept on talking to me and finally got to cussing and I cut the radio off and went back to driving it like I did and I lapped the field again ... and he fired me when the race was over.

Kurt Busch Suspended By NASCAR
SB Nation- Atlanta - over 4 years
In response to Kurt Busch's actions after Saturday's Nationwide Series race at the Dover International Speedway, NASCAR has lowered the boom on the former Sprint Cup champion. Busch has been suspended through June 13, meaning he will not be allowed to take part in this weekend's Pocono 400 at the Pocono Raceway. In addition, his probation has been extended through December 31st. Originally, Busch was placed on probation through July 25tth for his meltdown at last month's Southern 500. This is Busch's first NASCAR-imposed suspension. He was suspended by then-team owner Jack Roush for the final two races of the 2005 season for a run-in with Maricopa County, AZ sheriff's deputies. Busch had already signed to leave Roush for Roger Penske after that season. He was released from Penske last December after a season of controversy culminated in him launching into a profanity laced tirade against ESPN pit reporter Dr. Jerry Punch. Busch has driven the underfunded (compa ...

NASCAR Kansas Race Win Would Be Huge For Clint Bowyer, Carl Edwards Or Jamie McMurray
SB Nation - almost 5 years
While any NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory would qualify as "big," a win in Kansas City would hold a special place in the heart of a trio of drivers. Clint Bowyer, a native of Emporia, Kan., and Carl Edwards and Jamie McMurray – both from neighboring Missouri – hope to enjoy the home-track feel that Kansas Speedway offers in Sunday's STP 400 (FOX, 1 p.m. ET). None of the three have won at Kansas, but Bowyer and Edwards have come the closest. Bowyer was runner-up in 2007, when Greg Biffle nursed his fuel-starved car to victory in a race that ended in near-darkness. Edwards finished second at Kansas the following year, coming up just short to Jimmie Johnson after trying a bold crossover move in the final lap. McMurray has a seventh-place run as the best finish among his two top-10s there. For Edwards, a Kansas win would be the salve for a 40-race winless streak, but it would also represent a cherished moment in his already memorable career. "There would be no bigger win ...
