PLAYERS: Kurt Busch
DENVER, Colo. – Sprint Cup Series driver Kurt Busch will add another form of professional motorsports to his driving resume. The former NASCAR champion, who has driven an Indy car, sports car and an NHRA Pro Stocker, will take part in a car swap Tuesday (April 23) with the Australian V8 Supercars Series during a media event at the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas. While Busch will be testing a Holden Commodore V8 Supercar, his No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet SS will also be at the track with an offer to the Australian V8 drivers in attendance — James Courtney and Fabian Coulthard — to pilot the Sprint Cup car around the 3.4-mile Grand Prix circuit. “I’m flattered to be invited by Circuit of The Americas and the Australian V8 Supercars Series to participate in this unique event,” Busch said. “Getting a chance to drive a V8 Supercar was high on my wish list, and the chance to do it at Circuit of The Americas makes this a dream opportunity.” The V8 Supercars Series, Australia’s premier motorsports category, is scheduled to compete May 17-19 at the Circuit of The Americas, which will also host the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix later in the year.
