Kurt Busch is strongly hinting that a announcement is imminent after weeks of rumours that he will join MJ 23XI Racing and bring his primary sponsor along with him.
“Monster Energy and the company, we’ve moved some dates around,” he said, according to Heavy.com. So (we’re) still looking around to find all the right puzzle pieces to have the proper announcement and the right recognition for everything.”
In an interview Busch did ahead of the weekend race at Indianapolis he sounded even more promising.
“There are a few puzzle pieces that will have to click in the right way,” he said, according to Racer.com, “but I’m smiling about it and so is everybody else around me.”
