PLAYERS: Kurt Busch
Could The Outlaw be going corporate? Kurt Busch has fought his way into the top ten in the NASCAR Sprint Cup point standings in the No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet. It has been a remarkable story but there is reason to believe that Busch’s first season with Furniture Row could also be his last. Busch signed with Furniture Row midway through the 2012 season on a one year deal to drive the No. 78 car. Since that time Busch has taken a team who has spent much of its Sprint Cup existence in the mid-20s to one which regularly contends for top ten finishes. That may have been enough to earn Busch another top ride in the sport. According to ESPN the team of Stewart Haas Racing has submitted an offer for Busch to drive a fourth Sprint Cup car during the 2014 season. There Busch would be teamed with Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick and Danica Patrick. SHR has never denied interest in Busch, even as the organization has said it would not bring Ryan Newman back for the 2014 season. Busch’s car under...

  • Kurt should stay with Furniture Row he does not do well as a teammate he likes being a top dog and he makes that team a legitimate chase contender. He has tons of knowledge on how to set-up a car and him and Todd are on the same page. He should move to Denver and start new since his break with Eva.

Kurt Busch may be fourth car for SHR

When Tony Stewart made the announcement last month that Ryan Newman would not be returning to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014, he added, "We are not ready to expand to a fourth team." Maybe that's about to change. Sources tell that Kurt Busch has been made a formal offer to join Stewart-Haas Racing next season. Neither Stewart, who is recovering from a broken...

NASCAR: Kurt Busch to SHR a Slap in the Face to Ryan Newman?

An announcement that literally no one saw coming happened Sunday night after the Pure Michigan 400 at the Michigan International Speedway. Stewart-Haas Racing announced they have offered current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kurt Busch a ride for the 2014 season. What? Let’s rewind back to the announcement the week following the Coke Zero 400 in Daytona. On Friday morning of...

NASCAR: Kurt Busch has formal offer to join SHR in 2014

What a weird string of events this weekend at Michigan International Speedway. Silly Season formally started back in July when SHR announced they would part ways with Ryan Newman after the 2013 season and bring in Kevin Harvick it made Newman a free agent. At the time, Tony Stewart said they couldn’t afford to fund four teams and that was the reason why Newman would be let go....

Busch To Stewart-Haas Racing?

Breaking late Sunday was the report from Fox Sports reporter Lee Spencer that Kurt Busch has been offered a ride at Stewart-Haas Racing. That is just weird on so many different levels and coming out of left field. Why this could work: Busch is having a revitalizing year with Furniture Row Racing, who, for all their help from Richard Childress Racing, are still a single car operation...

Busch feeling the speed at Michigan

How fast is too fast? How about 220 mph-plus down the backstretch at Michigan Speedway? Kurt Busch, who will start on the front row for Sunday's Pure Michigan 400 and tested an IndyCar at the track earlier this year, says, "You don't feel it." "Once you cross over that 200-mile-per-hour threshold, there's a trust you have to put into the car to stick...

NASCAR: Kurt Busch in Chase position with 3 races to go…who saw this coming?

Quick, raise your hand if you’re surprised to see Kurt Busch in a Chase position with just three races to go before the Chase? (Writer’s hand is in the air.) However, like many of you, I wouldn’t say I’m shocked to see the No. 78 Chevrolet ninth in the points at this point in the season. It’s not as though, say, Danica Patrick is fighting for a position in NASCAR’s playoff...

Kurt Busch making impressive bid for Chase spot

Updates with background, details By NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer Less than a decade removed from a championship in NASCAR's top series, Kurt Busch is an underdog now. It's a role he seems plenty comfortable with. There are three races remaining in the regular season, and Busch is ninth in the points standings, meaning he has a decent shot at a surprising berth in the Chase...

Major Tony Stewart Update, Ty Dillion, And More

The major Tony Stewart update is out and Tony Stewart is not going to be back for the rest of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup season.  Mark Martin is going to drive the rest of the season except for the Talladega race where Austin Dillion is going to get the ride. Over at Michael Waltrip Racing Brian Vickers is going to be in 12 of the final 13 races.  Michael Waltrip will get the...

Stewart-Haas Racing bringing a new ATTITUDE to NASCAR?

In a weekend that had neither Tony Stewart or Gene Haas at the Michigan International Speedway, they still were able to take the NASCAR Nation by storm.  Late Sunday night the rumors hit the production line and boy is it exciting.  But, how true is it?  And will it work? With SHR already dismissing it’s weakest link, Ryan Newman, and adding “The Finisher” Kevin Harvick,...

Joey Wins From the Poll

Jeff Gordon stated that has a great racecar today. When the green flag dropped it was go time for Kurt Busch that got the race lead.  Clint Bowyer though at the end of the lap took a wild spin through the grass by himself to bring out the caution.  On the restart Joey Logano got the better restart and the race lead, but at lap 8 it was caution time again as David Reutimann...
