Billy Currington replaced in All-Star Race because of bust


Race officials have put out the red flag on Billy Currington's scheduled appearance at the All-Star race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.

Officials say the decision has to do with Currington's arrest earlier this week. He stands charged with making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person, both felonies.

He was released from a Georgia jail after posting a $27,700 bond.

Josh Turner will perform in Currington's place
