Scott Speed Is Suing Red Bull

[1]Scott Speed tweeted [2] that he is suing Red Bull over his recent termination [3]. Speed wrote:

[T]oday should be the day my lawyer files this lawsuit against Red Bull…Had to tell my loyal twitter followers before they saw it online.

According to Speed, he was notified via fax at the end of the November that he was released. Speed said:

I’m obviously stupid disappointed that I didn’t even get a phone call, not a conversation, not anything from anyone from Austria. They all showed up at Miami. None of them spoke a word to me. I got a fax. … They thought it was OK to kick me to the curb and not try to do absolutely anything for me.

While he would not discuss specifics, Speed did say that he had a contract from RBR for 2011.

Speed is currently looking for a red next season. He would like to remain in stock cars, including a competitive Nationwide or Camping World Truck Series team.
