Biography

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Kurt Busch page on 28 January 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Kurt Thomas Busch is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently drives the No. 41 Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He was the 2004 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series champion. He is the older brother of 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Kyle Busch. The brothers are second-generation racing drivers; their father, Tom, won several NASCAR-sanctioned events.

Busch has also driven for Furniture Row Racing, Phoenix Racing, Penske Racing, and Roush Racing in his Sprint Cup career, which began in 2000. The winner of twenty-nine Cup career races, Busch was driving for Roush Racing when he won the 2004 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series championship. Busch also races on an "opportunity permitting" basis in the Pro Stock division of NHRA. When Busch won the Cup Series Championship in 2004, it was the first ever season using the "Chase for the Cup" points format. With a 2006 win in the Busch Series, Busch became one of only twenty-nine drivers to win races in all three of NASCAR's top divisions: the Cup Series, the Xfinity Series, and the Camping World Truck Series. Busch is also a Daytona 500 winner, accomplishing the feat in 2017.

His Cup career has also included a series of arguments, fights with other drivers, profanity-laced tirades, and legal problems that have resulted in suspensions on three different occasions, the most recent being in February 2015.
