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.
