(Reuters) - NASCAR reinstated Kurt Busch on Wednesday, six days after the Delaware Attorney General's office declined to press criminal charges in domestic abuse case involving the driver's former girlfriend.

"As we stated last week, the elimination of the possibility of criminal charges removed a significant impediment to Kurt Busch's return to full status as a NASCAR member," Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president.

"We therefore have decided to move him to indefinite probation."
