LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Kurt Busch has an uncertain future at Phoenix Racing.
Busch was absent Friday at Pocono Raceway as part of the one-week suspension levied by NASCAR for verbally abusing a media member.
The 2004 Cup champion is not eligible to return to a NASCAR-sanctioned event until June 13. Busch has free time to think about his Tuesday meeting with Phoenix Racing owner James Finch and decide if this frayed relationship can be saved. But, a professional divorce could be on the horizon.
All Phoenix got out of Busch was a string of poor results and one giant headache.
Busch's excuses and his defenders have worn thin. Phoenix wants to keep Busch but only if certain changes are made.
