Skirts and Scuffs' new weekly feature continues, recapping all the hot topics from our sport in the past week. We'll keep you informed about what's going on in NASCAR, so if you missed anything, don’t worry – we have you covered. As always, your comments are welcome on our Facebook page. So, ladies and gentlemen, start your opinions!

Cole Custer is given a terrific opportunity
Custer is stepping into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with JR Motorsports for ten races in 2015. With longtime sponsor HAAS Automation on his No. 00 satellite team truck for JRM, the 17-year-old will have 2015 to get co-owner’s Dale Earnhardt Jr., his sister Kelley and owner Rick Hendrick into victory lane.

The drama continues  
This past week in a Dover, Delaware courtroom the Kurt Busch dilemma continued. Busch testified  he believes his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll is a trained assassin who completed covert missions around the world. 

“Everybody on the outside can tell me I’m crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand," said Busch, when questioned by his attorney Rusty Hardin. 

The allegations have been denied by Driscoll who is seeking a no-contact order against Busch. The court has plenty of time to decipher the testimonies, however, a decision is expected later this month or in early February. In addition, a criminal charge in the domestic violence case against Busch is still in the hands of the Delaware Attorney General’s office.

The question is – if Kurt races this year, how much of a distraction will this situation be?

The other Busch brother finds himself in the news 
Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) reports the organization is being sued by former competition director Rick Ren in the amount of $390,000 for commissions and bonus money he claims they owe him.

KBM’s attorney denies these allegations and said he will defend Busch in what he believes is a frivolous lawsuit.
