Kurt Busch will leave Furniture Row Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and head to Stewart-Haas Racing starting in 2014.
According to a report Monday by Fox Sport’s Lee Spencer, the driver has signed the deal. The team has scheduled an official announcement for Tuesday.
Busch is the 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, a title he won while with Roush-Fenway Racing. He moved to Penske Racing at the end of 2005. His career has been marked with several emotional outbursts which have landed the driver in hot water on more than one occasion. His departure from Penske was aided by an incident when Busch swore at an ESPN reporter. NASCAR fined Busch $50,000 for the incident and Busch and the team agreed to part ways. Busch then signed with Furniture Row for 2013, where he is currently 12th in the Sprint Cup point’s standings. Busch has 24 career Cup wins. MORE>>>
