According to a report from the Motor Racing Network (MRN), Stewart Haas Racing has made a formal offer to Kurt Busch for 2014 as the silly season for driver placement begins to pick up pace.
Busch is on a one-year contract with Furniture Row Racing through 2013, and neither driver nor team elaborated further on the rumor over the weekend at Michigan International Speedway. Busch did say his focus at the moment is solely on making the Chase for the Sprint Cup with Furniture Row.
With Busch and Stewart are arguably the two of the most decorated and controversial drivers in NASCAR, such a move may be unlikely for a variety of reasons.
In the meantime, Stewart Haas has already announced Ryan Newman is looking for new employment in 2014 and Stewart himself has said he’d do everything to help Newman going forward. But whether or not that means considering running a fourth car is unknown.
