Kyle Busch raised doubts over his Joe Gibbs Racing future Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway.
Busch is currently the only active multiple champion driver at Cup Series level revealed that he had no idea where he’ll be driving next season.
The 36-y-o signed a multiyear contract extension deal with Joe Gibbs Racing back in 2019 on undisclosed terms, Kyle Busch has been with the JGB since 2008.

When he questioned regarding the status of Busch‘s standing were redirected toward the team owner Joe Gibbs.
“I‘m not getting antsy about it,” Busch said. “If it happens, it happens. If it don‘t, it don‘t. Goodbye.”
“Ask Joe Gibbs,” Busch said.
“So, I don’t deal with the sponsorship stuff directly,” Coy Gibbs said. “I kind of stick on the competition side. But we’ve got a couple people we’re talking to, so we’re excited about that, excited about the leads. I think any time you win, it helps.”
