Kurt Busch NASCAR Appeal


As some of you may or may not know, that Kurt Busch was suspended by NASCAR indefinitely on Friday afternoon due to the legal case that he beat his ex-girlfriend.

One of our reporters let me know that Kurt Busch was going to appeal his suspension at 12pm across the street from the Daytona International Speedway.

I arrived at the building at 11:15am hoping to get him arriving into the building. But Kurt arrived around 10am, so I missed him. Let the waiting game begin! With a few dozen tv stations, writers and other photographers, we were escorted into a room inside the building .

Having covered stuff like this in the past, no way Kurt Busch was gonna talk to any media. So myself and another photographer waited outside for 3 1/2 hours. After about 2 hours, we found the car the Kurt Busch arrived in. There was a D/O parking pass in the window which means Driver/Owner. Then in the back if the car, was luggage with StewartHass Racing on it, so that gave it away.

Shortly after, a guy got into the car and drove around the parking lot trying to avoid us. As I followed the car, a few minutes later it pulled in front of the building and out walked Kurt Busch from side door of the building where no one was expecting it.

So after 4 hours of waiting, it was a 30 second shoot.
