Title: Kurt Busch: Announcement tomorrow, topic "classified&qu
Post by: azbobbybooshay10 on November 07, 2005, 03:14:10 AM
Announcement tomorrow about the 97?

Despain just said on WindTunnel that Kurt told him there will be some sort of press release tomorrow, but he cannot comment on what it is. Supposedly had a little bit to do with his absence from WT last week, as well. Can't do too much talking about it for some reason.

Also, Roush said he hasn't talked to Kurt at all since Kurt asked for his release. Yikes.

In a mocking of the Democratic Party a couple weeks ago waiting for "Fitzmas", I think tonight might be "Busch-mas Eve".


Title: OFFICIAL Busch to Penske Racing & McMurray to Roush in 2

Just saw this on Jayski.  Darn!  I was really hoping Rudd would get a shot in the 2 car!   :cry:

"OFFICIAL - Busch to Join Penske Racing in 2006: Penske Racing South announced today that Kurt Busch will drive the Miller Lite Dodge commencing with the 2006 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup season. Busch, the 2004 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup champion, has reached an agreement with Roush Racing to be released from his driver responsibilities for the 2006 season. Busch will join Penske Racing South at the conclusion of the 2005 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup season. "We are pleased that Kurt and Roush Racing were able to reach an agreement on Kurt's release and appreciate the professionalism that it has taken to arrive at this result," said Roger Penske, chairman. "Kurt's joining us for 2006 will provide a smooth transition for the team and our sponsors." Busch had recently signed a multi-year agreement with Penske Racing South that was to take effect in 2007.(Penske Racing)(11-7-2005)"

Also from Jayski and Roush PR:

"Busch released from Roush Racing Contract, McMurray in: Roush Racing has announced that Kurt Busch has been released from his Roush Racing contract obligations effective at the end of the 2005 year and that Jamie McMurray has signed to drive for Roush Racing commencing in the 2006 season. Newell-Rubbermaid and Diageo [Crown Royal/Smirnoff] will continue as primary sponsors of the McMurray driven entry in NASCARís Nextel Cup Series.(Roush Racing)."

And something about Casey Mears moving to the 42 car at Ganassi next season.  Guess that strong run yesterday helped him out some.

I'm sorry, I didn't see that Bobby!   :oops:   I saw what you had added about Bobby, but not the others.    Again, I apologize.  Just happened to go to Jayski after I read your other post.
