Kurt Busch addresses retirement rumors during interview

Will Kurt Busch retire at the end of The 2018 season.

While the departure hasn’t been confirmed at this point in time, rumors about him moving to The Le Mans Series for Chip Ganassi next has fans wondering if his days in The Monster Energy Cup Series are numbered. Interestingly enough, however, Kurt Busch doesn’t seem that worried about it.

In fact, Busch, who went on to win last week’s race at Kentucky, was asked about his possible retirement and pretty much shot the question down. He also took the opportunity to talk about what a great job CGR was doing and how he was focused on helping the team progress

“It doesn’t matter if I’m driving in 2020, and beyond. ,” Kurt Busch said during an interview at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, ” It would be … (trying) to make things work here for 2019 and continue to improve whether I’m driving or I’m not, to help all of Ganassi,” 

Of course, Busch also claimed during the interview that he was interested in putting a winning run together and winning the second championship of his career. That might sound like a bit of a longshot for Busch, who left powerhouse SHR last season, but he has had a lot of undeniable success at CGR too.

“It’s just a matter of if I’m driving or I’m not, “Busch continued, ” I’m still going to do my job to make sure we are progressing and pushing toward the future on what I believe is important and what they want to do to apply it and what they believe is important and what I have to listen to.”

With that being said and Kurt Busch admitting that he doesn’t have all the answers to his future yet, he did admit during the interview that winning a second championship could be what compels him to retire from the sport for good and help Gannassi in another role.
