NASCAR driver Kurt Busch again denies alleged assault

DOVER, Del. (AP) — NASCAR driver Kurt Busch has resumed testifying in a hearing regarding his ex-girlfriend's request for a no-contact order.

As he did last month, Busch testified Monday in a Dover, Delaware, courtroom that he did not assault Patricia Driscoll inside his motorhome at Dover International Speedway in September.

Driscoll says Busch assaulted her after she drove from her Maryland home to Dover to check on him after he sent her several disturbing texts.

Busch's attorneys have portrayed Driscoll as a scorned woman out to destroy Busch's career after he ended their relationship shortly before the Dover race.

While Driscoll claims she is afraid of Busch, Busch on Monday read a text exchange from October in which Driscoll describes her disappointment that he had not tried to reach out to her.
