NASCAR Sprint Cup team Stewart-Haas Racing made the official announcement Tuesday that it will expand to a four car team in 2014 and will add 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Kurt Busch.

Busch will join team co-owner Tony Stewart along with drivers Danica Patrick and Kevin Harvick.

“Stewart-Haas Racing has proven itself to be a very competitive race team. Every team wants to win, but the preparation and resources Gene Haas and Tony Stewart and everyone at SHR put into their racecars each and every week is incredible,” Busch said in a statement. “This is the kind of situation every driver wants to be in, and I’m grateful to Gene Haas and Haas Automation for providing me this opportunity. I didn’t think anyone wanted to win as much as me until I met Gene Haas.” MORE>>>
