Travis Kvapil takes deal in domestic assault case


NASCAR driver Travis Kvapil will serve two years of probation and complete 72 hours of community service as part of a deferred prosecution agreement in his domestic assault case. Kvapil will have to pay $460 in court cost and fees. He will also have to attend an anger management class.

Kvapil faced misdemeanor charges of false imprisonment and assault on October 8, 2013.  According to police records, Kvapil was accused of pulling his wife  by the  hair into a bedroom and allegedly struck her in the head. Alcohol nor weapons were involved according to the police report.

Under the prosecution agreement, the charges against Kvapil will be dropped. The news was first reported by The Sporting News.

“Obviously, I’m embarrassed about the situation,” Kvapil said following his arrest in October. “I don’t like the negative effects it’s brought on. So I apologize to NASCAR, my team, supporters of my team, my fans anyone else who was impacted by what happened Tuesday night.”

Kvapil drove for BK Racing for both the 2012 and 2013 season, competing in 71 races between the two seasons with a best finish of ninth coming at Talladega SuperSpeedway in 2012. BK Racing chose not to re-sign Kvapil at the end of the 2013 season and instead opted to sign both Alex Bowman and Ryan Truex Jr.

Kvapil currently has not been signed by any other team.
