Brian France: 'It wouldn't be right of us to just intervene' HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France said league officials will allow an investigation involving driver Kurt Busch to run its course before responding or reacting to allegations of domestic assault, despite calls from a U.S. Representative to park the former premier series champion. Busch , who won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title in 2004, is under investigation by the Dover (Del.) Police Department for an allegation of assault filed Nov. 5 by Patricia Driscoll. Driscoll is Busch's former girlfriend and president of the Armed Forces Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit group. Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-California) has contacted NASCAR officials, as well as officials with Stewart-Haas Racing , the team for which Busch drives, asking that the 36-year-old Busch be suspended for the remainder of the season. The series wraps up its 2014 schedule here at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday. "We are watching that case carefully … it's under review by law enforcement and others, and they have not made a decision on that regarding Kurt ," France said Friday during a press conference at the 1.5-mile track. "So until they make some judgments on that investigation, it wouldn't be right of us to just intervene before they've even gotten the investigation completed. So that's our position. We'll respect their process. It's in their hands." France said he had not spoken with Busch , although there have been conversations between officials of the sanctioning body and the driver. That a member of Congress has spoken out about NASCAR's lack of action, he said, is not cause for alarm. "It's a very sensitive topic today," France said. "Rightfully so. And so (it's) not surprising that some members of Congress and other leaders might have some strong views on what we should and shouldn't do. "But as I said, we'll stay the course, let the investigation be completed, and then we'll react." Gene Haas, co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, said last week that there are no plans to remove his driver from the team's No. 41 Chevrolet. "He'll be in the car until someone else pulls him out," Haas said. "I'm not pulling him out."
