NASCAR: As Useless as Teats On a Boy And Beyond Trailer Park Sleazy

BuschLet me go on record as saying any sort of domestic violence is reprehensible and inexcusable. This case, however, continues to grow more idiotic by the minute. Unlike NASCAR, Chevrolet, John Oreovicz or anyone else who has found Kurt Busch guilty until proven innocent and worthy of serious punishment in whatever ridiculous kangaroo court (like ESPN) of public opinion that pops up it is far smarter to evaluate this case on actual facts. Facts we know: 1) Kurt Busch has not been formally charged with any crime. 2) The state of Delaware is not sure it will ever charge Busch with anything citing a lack of evidence. 3) No purple skinned woman abusing snapshots or any other physical evidence exists of the alleged victim. 4) Patricia Driscoll forced entry into Busch’s motor home on the evening of the alleged ‘attack.’ She is lucky he did not shoot the intruder.

I agree that everyone is entitled to their opinions, but when opinions take the place of facts as criteria to remove someone from their job it gets a tad disconcerting as a freedom loving citizen. I have opinions as well. I believe Kurt Busch can be a raging asshole. So what? That is no reason to find him guilty of anything. Using an opinion that someone is an asshole is the reason people found Tony Stewart guilty of murder before any sort of charge or trial occurred. It does not add up. It is not mature, human behavior. I have opinions about Patricia Driscoll. I believe she is a lunatic psychopath and 50+ shades of crazy. She is physically attractive however, and I firmly believe a ‘batting eyebrows/quivering lip’ defense prevailed in the family mediation. She is not losing her livelihood however.

YeeHawNASCAR, involved manufacturers and judgmental columnists have become utterly notorious for acting in mostly knee-jerk fashion based almost exclusively on the way the wind blows. That is as underhanded and downright sleazy as an otherwise intelligent group of people can possibly get. If NASCAR was the slightest bit interested in balanced treatment they would yank Driscoll’s credentials from any of their events and mandate someone else manage the NASCAR-related affairs of the Armed Forces Foundation until the matter was conclusively and legally sorted out. Clearly they do not consider fairness, much less reason, and are driven exclusively by an unrealistic fear some other holier-than-thou might get chagrined. That is offensive to me.

Our society has essentially become a panty-wearing gaggle of little girls devoid of even the sense God granted geese.


  1. Seems to me like we might be headed for “Gentlemen, Start Your Lawsuits, Pt. 2: Busch Strikes Back.” In our overly-litigious society, NASCAR does NOT need to be defending itself in a lawsuit, even if the potential plaintiff (Busch) is a raging asshole. Yet, without anything other than family mediation as its guide, NASCAR has chosen to banish Busch from it’s premier event. If I am in Kurt’s shoes, I’ve got a bevy of lawyers, ready to take NASCAR to task.

  2. Telling that nowhere in your long winded screed did you bother to mention the most relevant fact, namely that the Family Court judge issued a restraining order against Busch to protect Ms. Driscoll, having determined that a “preponderance” of the evidence showed KB assaulted her.

    Editor’s Note: Evidence = she said versus he said. No physical evidence whatsoever. A total sham.

    • A judge who actually heard testimony and considered evidence came to a different and informed conclusion. Educated people have no issue with that decision, or Nascars subsequent action. It’s really not difficult to understand why they did what they did.
      Editor’s Note: Additional pesky facts among educated people include A) Kurt Busch has not been formally charged with any crime. B) The State of Delaware has no plans to charge Busch with any crime. Reason? Lack of evidence. C) Marco Andretti, who knows both, believes Ms. Driscoll is troubled emotionally. I believe today’s Daytona 500 and NASCAR are tainted. Guilty until proven innocent.
