Kurt Busch Joining Stewart-HaasSports Monday, August 26th, 2013
Kurt Busch has signed a multiyear contract to drive for Stewart-Haas Racing beginning with the 2014 season, Busch told ESPN on Monday morning.
“I’m going to Stewart-Haas,” Busch said. “I’ve signed my deal.”
The SHR organization has said it will hold a press conference Tuesday afternoon “to announce the future expansion of Stewart Haas Racing.”
Busch received the offer to drive for Stewart-Haas a week ago and received a subsequent offer from his current team, Furniture Row Racing, last week.
Busch is one of several drivers on the bubble to qualify for NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup. With two races remaining to determine the Chase field, Busch ranks 12th in the standings, six points behind 10th-place Joey Logano.
Busch said Monday he appreciates greatly the opportunity afforded him at FRR. Asked whether he can maintain focus and help get the No. 78 team into the Chase, he said, “Come Wednesday, that’s all I’m going to think about.”
