For a while in 2015, Kurt was banned indefinitely by NASCAR for physical assault on his former girlfriend, but is now back racing in the series in which he is still one of NASCAR's top drivers - the 2004 Champion, with over 20 wins and 15 poles in 500 plus races. His career had not been without controversy on or off the track prior to the assault, but he remained a popular, albeit divisive figure until the ban in 2015. A year previously, he finally realised a long held ambition to race in the Indianapolis 500, which has been his only real foray into open-wheel racing.
