AVONDALE, Ariz.—NASCAR is sending suspended driver Jeremy Clements to a sports psychologist in hopes of getting him back on the track soon.

Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR's Senior Vice President of Racing Operations, said Saturday that Clements will work with Dr. Richard Lapchick to get him back in his car as quickly as possible and as the organization deems fit.

Clements was suspended indefinitely on Wednesday for violating the sanctioning body's code of conduct for making what O'Donnell said was an "intolerable and insensitive remark" during the course of an interview.

Clements issued an apology for his remarks on Facebook earlier this week.
