CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP) -- NASCAR on Monday suspended Kurt Busch one week for verbally abusing a media member. NASCAR said Busch's behavior after Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Dover was in violation of the probation he was placed on after an incident last month at Darlington. Busch was fined 50,000 by NASCAR and placed on probation through July 25 for reckless driving on pit road, and a post-race altercation with Ryan Newman's crew members. That probation has now been extended through the end of the year. Busch's latest penalty stems from a confrontation with a Sporting News reporter after Saturday's race.
