NASCAR’s Kvapil faces two charges

BK Racing driver Travis Kvapil has been released from an Iredell County (N.C.) jail after being charged Tuesday night with assault on a female and false imprisonment.

According to Mooresville (N.C.) Police, shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday, officers “responded to the Kvapil residence following a 911 phone call regarding an assault. Mooresville Police Department conducted an investigation and arrested Kvapil following a domestic dispute between the defendant and his wife.”

Kvapil spent the night in jail because the courts were closed. He was released at 9:50 a.m. on an unsecured bond, according to Iredell court officials.

Kvapil did not return a call requesting comment.

“We’re trying to understand the situation right now," BK Racing team owner Ron Devine told "I’ve known for less than an hour (5:40 p.m. EST) and at the appropriate time we’ll make an announcement.”

Devine added that no decision has been made regarding the driver’s status in the No. 93 BK Racing Toyota for this weekend.

Kvapil is currently 31st in the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings. In 240 Cup starts, his best finish was a sixth at Talladega in 2008.

Prior to Kvapil’s seven seasons on the Sprint Cup tour, he won the NASCAR truck championship in 2003.
