Kurt Busch resumes testimony regarding alleged assault

BY foxsports • January 13, 2015

DOVER, Del. (AP) NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is set to resume testifying in a hearing regarding his ex-girlfriend's request for a no-contact order.

Busch testified Monday that he did not assault Patricia Driscoll after she showed up uninvited at his motorhome at Dover International Speedway in September just days after he told her their relationship was over.

But Driscoll claims that Busch grabbed her by the throat and face and slammed her head into a wall three times. Her attorney was to cross-examine Busch on Tuesday.

Driscoll says Busch assaulted her after she drove from her Maryland home to Dover to check on him after he sent her several disturbing texts following a poor qualifying session at Dover.

Busch's attorneys have portrayed Driscoll as a scorned woman out to destroy his career.
