FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kyle Busch will not be allowed to race in the Sprint Cup or Nationwide races at Texas after he deliberately wrecked championship contender Ron Hornaday Jr. in the Truck Series race.
NASCAR announced its decision Saturday after a meeting with Busch and Joe Gibbs, his Sprint Cup car owner.
Hornaday was knocked out of Friday night's truck race on the 14th of 148 laps when Busch retaliated for contact between them by pushing the four-time champion into the wall. The trucks made contact after trying to go three-wide around a slower truck and both then brushed the wall.
Busch got behind Hornaday, and kept pushing until the No. 33 truck wound up in the wall.
