NO. 51 WILL BELONG TO KURT BUSCH DURING THE 2012 NASCAR SEASON
Tue, 27 Dec 2011 08:01 AM EST

“I entertained quite a bit of quality offers with other programs,” Busch, the 2004 Sprint Cup champion, told ESPN.com Thursday. “My ambition was to run part time with quite a few different groups. There was a Ford offer, a Toyota offer and a Chevy offer. Baseball odds

“I needed to go personally for understanding as many groups as I could, that way I could work with many more sponsors and that many more people in the garage. That way it would help me with a thumb’s-up for 2013.”

Busch recounted each organisation had its benefits, but in the end he went with Phoenix Racing and Finch because “I just wished to get back to having a good time in the race car.”

Finch was one of the first team owners Busch approached after reaching a “mutual” agreement to split with Penske Racing after a tumultuous end to the 2011 season, in which he struck out with a profanity-laced tirade against ESPN columnist Dr. Jerry Punch.

Finch, who did not straight away return telephone calls, told ESPN.com 2 weeks back that if Busch embarrassed him like he did owner Roger Penske and team members this past year “he would have got his ass beat on pit road.”

“He needs to broil down a while,” Finch expounded at the time. “There are a lot of people that don’t like Kurt. He’s never done anything to me specifically. He just needs to look in the mirror and see what the issue is.”

Busch has an one year deal to drive the vehicle that finished 30th in points last season with Landon Cassill driving almost all of the 36-race schedule. He hopes to reconstruct his image and negotiate a return to one of the top-flight associations in 2013.

“For me, I would like to prove I’m making the right changes,” Busch claimed. “I’ve got to go and smile at the track, have fun with this building project.”

Busch claimed he debated options with Richard Petty Motorsports, Michael Waltrip Racing and Tommy Baldwin Racing before choosing Phoenix Racing.

“This is all about having fun,” he said. “This is about 2012 and what I can do to develop as a driver in a better way. This kind of fun will let me do such and stand on taller ground.”

Phoenix Racing general manager Steve Barkdoll agreed that Finch won’t put up with Busch’s behavior, adding the deal will be good for both sides. Baseball spreads

“I chatted with Kurt 1 or 2 times,” Barkdoll expounded. “He wishes to get back to where he is having a great time again and earn his respect back once more. If you ask anybody in the garage where you can have the most fun, it’s racing for James Finch.”

Nick Harrison will serve as Busch’s crew chief for the organization, that has 18 employees. Because Phoenix Racing gets its engines and chassis from Hendrick Motorsports, it is considered one of the finest rides without a big-time driver.

“Kurt required a good ride, and with Hendrick Motorsports behind us we will give him one,” Barkdoll expounded.

Barkdoll expounded Busch could turn Phoenix Racing into a Chase-contending team right away.

“That’s what we’re hoping for,” he claimed. “With Kurt in the vehicle, all we need for Christmas is a Chase spot and a couple of wins.”
