Stripped of his Chase spot, then his sponsorship, Martin Truex Jr. is now in a hasty scramble to find a ride.
Kyle Busch had the attention of about 75 airmen at Dover Air Force Base when one asked the NASCAR star if he had any side bets with his brother, Kurt, about who would come out on top of the Chase.
Kurt Busch said Monday he has signed with Stewart-Haas Racing, which is rapidly developing into a super-team and will have four cars next season with the addition of the 2004 NASCAR champion.
Furniture Row Racing never stood a chance at keeping Kurt Busch once Gene Haas began courting the 2004 NASCAR champion.
The pre-Kurt Busch numbers at Furniture Row Racing weren't pretty: one win, three top-five finishes, eight top-10s and a measly 48 laps led in almost 200 races.
Furniture Row Racing will field its own pit crew next season.
Kurt Busch is ready for yet another new ride.
Joe Garone, general manager of Furniture Row Racing, said the team had been looking at every driver available, including some from lower-tier series.
"Sometimes you have to have faith, and have patience," Garone said. "It was really a struggle to keep ourselves patient and just pray for the right opportunity to come along. And then, the right opportunity comes along. Probably an opportunity that you just couldn't even dream about having. That's kind of how it went."
