FORT WORTH, Tex. — Driving for his third team in less than a year, Kurt Busch can see substantial progress in his relatively short tenure with Furniture Row Racing. In his fourth start for the team, Busch ran eighth Sunday, posting his best finish on an oval track since winning at Dover in the third Chase race of 2011.
“Considering that we had a top-five or top-10 car at the last two races but got nailed in accidents, it was important to come away with a solid finish today,” Busch said. “We’ve made a lot of progress as a team in a short period of time, which gives us plenty of optimism for 2013.
“However, we still have some handling issues to work out, but we’re getting there. This was only our fourth race together, and I’m really proud of how we came back after struggling for a good finish.”
