Kurt Busch had a strong run going in the Irwin Tools Night Race Saturday at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. The driver of the Haas Automation Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) appeared to be in contention for a top-five finish in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event, but contact with David Ragan and the outside wall on lap 336 saw those chances evaporate, and Busch was able to do little more than “just hold on” for the remaining laps.

KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (Aug. 19, 2015) – Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), has been looking forward to Saturday night’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway for weeks.

Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), finished 20th in Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn after a frustrating day of misfortunes and battling an ill-handling car. “It was a tough day, and I hate it for my Haas Automation team,” Busch said. “We were very loose on exit all day and couldn’t get any grip on restarts. Just couldn’t get on top of the handling, and after two […]
Rolling hills with lush green grass, expansive lakes and small, quaint villages are in full view on the drive along U.S. Highway 12 in southern Michigan. Golf courses and vast, farmed land also are part of the otherwise tranquil scene. It’s a serene setting and one conducive to the quiet country life many enjoy in the area. Any thundering noises that may disturb this quiet setting are typically the tell-tale signs of an impending storm. It’s all part of an […]
Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), showed a strong effort Sunday at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, overcoming a pit-road penalty to finish fifth in the Cheez-It 355k at The Glen NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. “It was a great effort,” Busch said. “We had to overcome a pit-road penalty and just being stuck in the back, I wasn’t quite making the right decisions on some of the restarts. I was […]
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races 39 times a year – 36 points-paying events and a trio of non-points events in the Sprint Unlimited, the Budweiser Duals and the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race. That 39-race schedule takes competitors to a wide variety of venues, from short tracks to intermediate tracks to superspeedways to road courses. The majority of those events, however, take place on tracks labeled as ovals. In fact, series competitors race on oval tracks 94.8 percent of the […]
Kurt Busch felt confident heading into the Windows 10 400 Sunday at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway, but his day didn’t end with the finish he had hoped for. Following a restart on lap 65 of the 160-lap race, Paul Menard tapped the side of Busch’s No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet of Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), sending it into a long, lazy slide through turn one. Just as it appeared Busch had saved it, Sam Hornish Jr. plowed into the left side of […]
