Busch received a contract offer Tuesday from the Stewart-Haas Racing and received a contract offer Friday from Furniture Row Racing according to several reports. Busch announced Monday that he had chosen to sign a multi-year deal with Stewart-Haas Racing. Busch will drive a fourth car for the team teaming up with Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick and Danica Patrick.
According to the report an official announcement is expected at 2:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Busch's number for the 2014 season may be #00 as the team is trying to acquire that number.
Furniture Row Racing General Manager Joe Garone commented on the situation.
"It was always our intention to extend Kurt's contract with Furniture Row Racing. We made him an offer last week to continue as the driver of the #78 Furniture Row Chevrolet in 2014 and beyond. Though he did not accept our offer we respect his decision and wish him future success. His driving skill and being a dedicated team player will always be appreciated at Furniture Row Racing. But for right now the main focus for Kurt and the team is to qualify for the Chase and contend for the 2013 Sprint Cup Series championship. Furniture Row Racings technical and engineering programs along with a talented road crew have made great strides this season, which have been evident with the consistently fast race cars that we have brought to the track week in and week out. We, along with our technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing, are deeply committed to continuing the work in progress. We are currently in a search process for a new driver in 2014, one who shares the same commitment and winning attitude that we all do at Furniture Row Racing."
No word yet on who will be Kurt Busch's crew chief in 2014.
