NASCAR bars Kyle Busch from rest of Texas race weekend

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kyle Busch will not be allowed to race

in the Sprint Cup or Nationwide races at Texas after he

deliberately wrecked championship contender Ron Hornaday Jr. in the

Truck Series race.

NASCAR announced its decision Saturday after a meeting with

Busch and Joe Gibbs, his Sprint Cup car owner.

Hornaday was knocked out of Friday night's truck race on the

14th of 148 laps when Busch retaliated for contact between them by

pushing the four-time champion into the wall. The trucks made

contact after trying to go three-wide around a slower truck and

both then brushed the wall.

Busch got behind Hornaday, and kept pushing until the No. 33

truck wound up in the wall.
