Kurt Busch joining Chip Ganassi Racing

"I am tremendously proud to be joining Chip Ganassi Racing and the prestigious group of alumni", Busch said. He will replace Jamie McMurray in the No. 1 vehicle.

"There's a new number 1 in town, and I'm taking her to Daytona (International Speedway)", he stated in the post.

On Tuesday Busch, Monster Energy and Chip Ganassi Racing all announced on social media of the move.

Busch announced this weekend he would be leaving Stewart-Haas Racing after five years with the team. "Along with Monster Energy, winning races and competing at the highest level, it's what we are all about".

Kurt Busch will spend the 2019 Cup season with Chip Ganassi Racing. McMurray is also rumoured to be running the exhibition Advance Auto Parts Clash and season-opening Daytona 500 in a third Ganassi vehicle. Ganassi's forward-thinking approach is why I have made a decision to commit all my years of Monster Energy Cup experience to CGR. There was a point that, honestly, I looked at it, and I was like, 'I don't know that I want them to call me back.' I was fighting, because I thought it was the right thing to do, but I wanted to drive [for Ganassi]. "I believe Kurt and the team will win a lot of races and we will have a lot of fun". "I didn't want to bounce somewhere else for a year and be unhappy".

"I would like to thank Stewart-Haas for 5 fantastic years driving the #41", Busch wrote, in part, on Twitter.

Chip Ganassi Racing tweeted a video Tuesday, promoting Busch's arrival. Busch will compete in his 20th season in the MENCS during the 2019 campaign. Incidentally, this will be his second stint in a #1 Chevrolet as he ran seven Nationwide Series (now Xfinity Series) races in such a vehicle for Phoenix Racing in 2012 and 2013.

He has 30 race victories in the series and has won such events such as the Daytona 500 (2017) the Coca-Cola 600 (2010) and the NASCAR All-Star Race (2010).

According to ESPN, the deal with CGR is a one-year agreement as the 2019 season could be Busch's final season racing full-time.
