NASCAR driver Kurt Busch believes his former girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, is a trained assassin.

Busch delivered testimony in court Tuesday, appearing in accordance with a no-contact request made by Driscoll.

"Everybody on the outside can tell me I'm crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand," said Busch of his ex-girlfriend's purported double life, per The Associated Press, via ESPN.com.

According to the AP report, a decision on the case is expected to be made by the end of the month or in the beginning of February. Driscoll denied the assassin allegations, stating that Busch's attorney, Rusty Hardin, couldn't possibly believe them himself:

These statements made about being a trained assassin, hired killer, are ludicrous and without basis and are an attempt to destroy my credibility. Not even Rusty Hardin believes this. [...] I find it interesting that some of the outlandish claims come straight from a fictional movie script I've been working on for eight years.

Tim Cowlishaw of The Dallas Morning News analyzed the bizarre situation:

Among the claims Busch made about Driscoll on Tuesday was that she asserted a female character in the film Zero Dark Thirty was based on her and other similar people. Busch has also testified that Driscoll showed him pictures of dead bodies, among other stories that fed the notion she was a contract killer.

In addition to the protective-order hearing, Busch and Driscoll will be entrenched in another legal battle regarding Busch's alleged domestic assault of Driscoll, which he's denied doing.

Busch finished 12th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup standings this past season in his maiden year with Stewart-Haas Racing.
