2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Kurt Busch will compete at this year’s Race Of Champions in at the Bushy Park Circuit in Barbados on December 13-14 it was announced Tuesday morning. Earlier this year Busch became only the fourth driver in motor sport history to attempt a racing double-header. On the same day in May, he raced both in NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 at North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway and the world-famous Indianapolis 500. His run to 6th place on his debut at the IndyCar classic earned him the Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year award.

Busch joins this year’s Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay for Team USA in the ROC Nations Cup. Busch and Hunter-Reay were team-mates in this year’s Indianapolis 500, both piloting cars for Andretti Autosport. Team USA last won the ROC Nations Cup title in 2002 with a NASCAR-heavy team of Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Colin Edwards.

The last NASCAR driver to compete in the ROC was Carl Edwards in 2010 MORE>>>
