Joe Gibbs Racing | Kyle Busch parked for the weekend

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch was parked for the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races over the weekend after he deliberately wrecked driver Ron Hornaday Jr. in the Truck Series Friday, Nov. 4. "I understand why I was taken out of the car for the rest of the weekend. NASCAR officials had to act, and I accept their punishment and take full responsibility for my actions," Busch wrote. "As a racecar driver, the hardest thing to do is to sit on the sidelines listening to cars on the track when you know you should be out there competing. For this, I have no one to blame but myself." Driver Michael McDowell replaced Busch in the Cup race Sunday, Nov. 6, and finished 33rd, dropping Busch to 11th in the Chase standings. At 100 points back of the leader, Busch has officially been eliminated.
