Busch under review by NASCAR for ignoring stop order
NASCAR is reviewing whether Kurt Busch will face further penalty for ignoring official requests to stop his car after a Lap 98 wreck Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.

NASCAR parked Busch for the remainder of the Sprint Cup race because he drove away from the wreck with emergency workers still in the process of providing him and the No. 51 Phoenix Racing Chevrolet assistance, and because there was emergency medical equipment on the track.

Busch said he never heard NASCAR's repeated requests to stop because he'd taken off his helmet that contains radio communication equipment.

Busch said he never heard NASCAR's repeated requests to stop because he'd taken off his helmet that contains radio communication equipment.

Busch is on probation through the end of the year for verbally abusing a reporter in June. He also was suspended from the Sprint Cup race at Pocono.

He lost a top-tier ride at Penske Racing after the 2011 season when he unleashed a profanity-laced tirade at ESPN reporter Dr. Jerry Punch during the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. ESPN.com
