“We take issues regarding driver safety extremely seriously at SRX,” Hawk said at the time. “This is not a decision we take lightly. It is our responsibility to ensure that we foster a competitive, and most importantly, a safe racing environment. I have been in contact with Paul directly and we appreciate his cooperation on this matter.”

Former NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion Johnny Benson will step to complete the field this week, with a replacement driver for the following two races to be announced at a later date.

Good move

PT has been a menace to racing since he, nearly, lost his IncyCar license. He is crash-happy.


Re: PT suspension – When Ken Schrader has to threaten to quit it’s way past time. Wish it were permanent.


PT should be done for good. Never have figured out why he was picked for the series to start with.
