NASCAR reinstates driver Jeremy Clements

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has reinstated Jeremy Clements following completion of stipulations set after the driver made insensitive remarks in an interview.

Clements is eligible to race this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, but will be on probation until Sept. 13.

Clements was sent to a sports diversity expert by NASCAR following his suspension for violating the sanctioning body's code of conduct. NASCAR determined Clements made an "intolerable and insensitive remark" during the course of an interview with a blogger for MTV News.

NASCAR says Clements had successfully completed an individualized program with Dr. Richard Lapchick and the staff at the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports at the University of Central Florida.
