    Kurt Busch has agreed to follow NASCAR's recommended guidelines to be eligible for eventual reinstatement. The 2004 champion was indefinitely suspended Feb. 20 after a Delaware judge said he believed Busch likely committed an act of domestic violence against a former girlfriend and there was a ''substantial likelihood'' of him doing it again. Busch lost two rounds of appeals for reinstatement before the season-opening Daytona 500 and has missed the first two races of the season. Regan Smith has replaced him in the No. 41 Chevrolet.
