Team owner Gene Haas didn’t consider pulling Kurt Busch from car
Car owner Gene Haas says he didn't consider pulling Kurt Busch (pictured above) from the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Chevrolet that Busch drives in the Sprint Cup Series while Bush is being investigated on domestic abuse charges.
Kurt Busch’s car owner did not consider removing him from the car while police in Delaware investigate a claim of domestic assault made by his former girlfriend.
Gene Haas, the co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, said before Sunday’s race at Phoenix International Raceway that ”there’s two sides to every story” and he had no problem allowing Busch to race. Haas hand-picked Busch to drive a new fourth car for SHR, and Haas Automation is the sponsor.
Said Haas as he stood next to Busch’s No. 41 Chevrolet on pit road: ”Let’s just let the police do their job. I hope they do a professional job and I want them to be unbiased, and I think when that happens, we’ll all be good.”
