#3 Kurt Busch retires
Speaking of retirements, Kurt Busch is more than likely to announce his retirement from NASCAR at the end of this season, which will open the #41 car for someone else. Not only is this evident by how hard it was for Busch to sign a deal with SHR during the previous offseason, but also by Busch’s lack of options with other teams.
Of course that’s not to say that Kurt Busch wouldn’t receive ride offers, but they aren’t probably aren’t going to be with a top tiered team and they most likely won’t be for long periods of time. In the end, its looks like the sun is setting on Kurt Busch’s career and it shouldn’t surprise anyone that he hangs it up at the end of the season.
