NASCAR: You Drink, You Drive, You're Out!

Reigning Nextel Cup Champion and Top 10 driver Kurt Busch was suspended by Roush Racing for the remainder of the season after an alcohol-involved confrontation with police Friday night. Busch has a history of controversial behavior, but Friday night was the last straw for his current team owner.

Roush Racing is to be commended for taking this serious step. NASCAR cannot afford to have its drivers mixing alcohol and high-speed driving.

Hopefully Busch will pull his act together before next season so that Penske Racing, his new employer, doesn't have to take similar action.
