Cody Ware 'accepts' his indefinite suspension from NASCAR
On April 10, just after Cody Ware's alleged crimes came to light, Rick Ware Racing posted a statement to Twitter in regards to the driver's NASCAR suspension. "We are aware of the incident regarding Cody Ware and his indefinite suspension from NASCAR competition," the statement read. "We understand NASCAR's position on this matter and accept their decision." It was then said that Ware was "fully cooperating with the authorities" amid the charges against him.
It is reported that NASCAR usually suspends its drivers who have been arrested and are currently dealing with charges against them, but the sports organization sometimes considers the severity of the allegations. For Ware, the accusations against him are on the more serious side, so it is expected that his suspension will stand until the case is fully settled.
This isn't the first time someone from the Ware family has gotten into trouble with the law. Cody's younger brother, Carson, was arrested in October 2021 for assaulting a woman, and was charged with simple assault and injury to personal property. While he dealt with the charges against him, Carson was also suspended by NASCAR.
