Further fallout from the Kyle Busch-Ron Hornaday incident at Texas - word has come that Busch will be replaced in the final Nationwide Series race at Homestead Miami Speedway.
According to a report Thursday from the Associated Press, Z-Line Designs has asked this week that Denny Hamlin replace Busch in next weekend's Nationwide race at Homestead. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because Busch's future was still being discussed with sponsors and Joe Gibbs Racing.
Busch's future remains uncertain in the Sprint Cup Series. According to the report, one option being discussed is for Aric Almirola to climb into the No. 18 car and replace Kyle Busch for the final two races. Busch's fate lies in the hands of primary sponsor M&Ms, and they are still deciding how to proceed with the 26-year-old driver.
NASCAR has cleared Busch to race this weekend at Phoenix. JGR officials haven't commented on his status in Sunday's Cup race.
Skirts and Scuffs will continue to cover this story as it develops, so stay tuned.
