"As our team driver the past four years, Regan has represented Furniture Row Racing with both class and competitiveness," Garone said. "He is a friend, and will always be a friend of Furniture Row Racing. We wish him all the best."
"Though we have made strides as a resourceful single-car Sprint Cup team, we are not where we want to be, which led us to the difficult decision of making a driver change as we move forward," said Furniture Row Racing's general manager Joe Garone. "Kurt's exceptional driving talent has the capacity to take a team to another level. We look forward to having Kurt join our Denver-based organization and feel his racing experience will play an important role as we plan ahead to 2013."
