When Kurt Busch gets in the car for Friday night’s NASCAR Nationwide race in Texas, it will be his debut driving for younger brother Kyle’s new stock car team.

Kurt Busch and Penske Racing have parted ways after yet another embarrassing incident for the 2004 NASCAR champion.
“This has been an incredible Speedweeks, and I just don’t want it to end,” Busch said after winning his first qualifying event at Daytona. “I want to make sure we keep doing everything right.”
