Team owner Denny Hamlin gives his views on hiring Kurt Busch for next season: “Kurt brings a wealth of knowledge and a championship mindset to our team, and will be able to help us grow stronger and more competitive each and every week.”

23XI Racing hasn’t said if it will have a charter for Kurt Busch ride in 2022. A charter is a guaranteed entry into every NASCAR race and guarantees a team a bigger share of NASCAR purse money. However, 23XI would have to purchase a charter from an existing team if it wants to buy one for Busch.
