Hearing begins for NASCAR driver Kurt Busch over ex’s claims

DOVER, Del. (AP) – A hearing for NASCAR driver Kurt Busch on his ex-girlfriend’s request for a no-contact order has resumed.

Monday’s hearing in Dover, Delaware, began with Busch’s attorney calling a chaplain who ministers to NASCAR drivers. The chaplain, Nick Terry, says he saw Busch’s ex-girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, on the September night when she says Busch assaulted her inside his motorhome at Dover International Speedway.

Terry said he saw no redness or marks on Driscoll that night. Shortly after Terry began testifying, the judge ordered a recess because Busch’s attorneys may have improperly shared Driscoll’s previous testimony with Terry.

Busch’s attorneys have denied the assault allegations and have tried to portray Driscoll as a scorned woman out to destroy Busch’s career.
