NASCAR reinstated Nationwide Series driver Jeremy Clements on Wednesday from an indefinite suspension for using a racial slur.

Clements, 29, used the "n-word" Feb. 23 at Daytona while speaking with an MTV blogger. He completed a racial sensitivity training session Monday.

"We're pleased that Jeremy has taken these important steps and will return to racing starting this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway," Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations, said.

Clements will be back in the car for Saturday's Nationwide race.

"It's been a tough time for me for sure," Clements told ESPN.com. "I learned a lot from that class. I learned a lot about different words, stuff I didn't know before. I learned a great deal about that and myself, how it affects everything that has to do with family, friends, church, sponsors and the team. I'm excited to be back in the race car. Nothing like that will ever happen again."
