Kurt Busch summed his debut with Furniture Row Racing during Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series Bank of America 400 in one sentence.

“It was an uneventful race, but an eventful weekend,” Busch said.

The 2004 Sprint Cup champion made the jump from Phoenix Racing to Furniture Row signing to race for the team for 2013 several weeks prior to Charlotte.  Both teams and Busch agreed that he could step into the No. 78 Chevy prior to seasons end in order to get experience for next season.  The move left Furniture Row driver Regan Smith without a ride, but not for long as the Phoenix Racing team signed Smith.

Smith wouldn’t start in the No. 51 Phoenix Chevy Saturday night as he was tapped to substitute for Dale Earnhardt Jr. who was forced to the sidelines with the lingering effects of a concussion.  Phoenix called on AJ Allmendinger, who was recently reinstated by NASCAR after failing a test for a banned substance this past July.
