NASCAR Reinstates Jeremy Clements
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR has reinstated driver Jeremy Clements upon the successful completion of stipulations following his indefinite suspension from NASCAR Feb. 27 for violating the sanctioning body’s Code of Conduct policy. Clements, who used a derogatory slur during an interview, will be on NASCAR probation until Sept. 13, 2013.
“As part of the requirements for reinstatement, Jeremy Clements participated in an individualized program with Dr. Richard Lapchick and his staff at the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “In Dr. Lapchick’s judgment, Jeremy has successfully completed the program. We’re pleased that Jeremy has taken these important steps and will return to racing starting this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway.”
