HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (January 24, 2013) – Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) announces today that it has signed driver Kyle Busch to a long-term contract extension. In addition, JGR will field the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2013 with Busch serving as the primary driver.
“I’m passionate about winning and that was a big factor in deciding to re-sign with Joe Gibbs Racing,” said Busch. “I think JGR gives me the best opportunity to win a championship in the Cup Series for M&M’s and Interstate Batteries. I know that everyone on our team is committed to that goal and will push towards making that a reality in 2013. I’m also looking forward to the opportunity to work with Adam Stevens in the Nationwide Series and put Monster Energy in Victory Lane where they belong.”
