Kurt Busch, the 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, will return to being part of a multi-car squad as the fourth member of Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. He has spent the last two years in lower-level, single car teams trying to rebuild from the tumultuous times he spent with Penske.
The official announcement, which also revealed that Busch will carry sponsorship from Haas Automation (Gene Haas’ company), took place recently at SHR headquarters in Kannapolis, North Carolina.
“Stewart-Haas Racing has proven itself to be a very competitive race team,” Busch said in a team statement. “Every team wants to win, but the preparation and resources Gene Haas and Tony Stewart and everyone at SHR put into their race cars each and every week is incredible.”
