Kyle Busch, is currently in the final year of his current contract with Joe Gibbs Racing and is set to leave the Toyota organization with no agreement in place to sign an extension.

Over the weekend at Watkins glen International 37-year-old Kyle Busch alluded to a big change ahead regarding his Nascar future.

M&M informed Joe Gibbs Racing last year that it would terminate its sponsorship of the No. 18 car after the 2022 season which has left JGR looking for a sponsor for Busch ever since then.

“He’s not driving that car next year” – Ty Gibbs to replace Kyle Busch at Joe Gibbs Racing in the No.18 

“You want to be able to go somewhere that you feel like you have a legit shot to race [and] to win. Trust me, I don’t feel like it’s fair to me or my family or anything else if we’re going to have to spend less time together moving forward because we are going to have to change our lifestyle; no question. There’s a big change coming,” Kyle Busch said at Watkins Glen.

Ty Gibbs will be driving the No. 18 car for Joe Gibbs Racing when Kyle Busch leaves the organization according to reliable NASCAR sources.

It’s reported that Kyle Busch has already signed a deal with Kaulig Racing that will be set to announce at Daytona or Darlington according to reports from an NASCAR insider at Watkins Glen.

Kaulig Racing is only in it’s second year in the NASCAR Cup Series and Kyle Busch did hinted past Saturday that it will not look the same as it did the past 15 years.

In a recent episode of the Door Bumper Clear Podcast they confirmed Kyle Busch won’t be back at JRG In 2023, and mentions Kaulig Racing as a favorite to sign him.

“What he said this week things are going to look a lot different than they have for the last 15 years that was pretty much a declaration of i’m out.”

“i think if you’re if you’re an odds maker i think the the favorite to land kyle busch right now is probablyKaulig Racing.” – Brett Griffin

Last month it was announced that Kaulig Racing was looking to buy a NASCAR Charter to expand the team.

Kaulig Racing only runs in the Cup and Xfinity Series however, they have grown quickly after buying two charters in NASCAR’s top level last year.

The two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion is currently the sport’s highest paid driver.

  1. You know if Kurt retires I have to pick a new driver. I will not pull for the 45 if Kurt’s not in it. I might just pull for Kyle.

    1. Exactly, I am heartbroken not knowing much about where Kurt is with his brain injury. But, I am so glad he’s being so careful. I have a Traumatic Brain Injury and I know how frustrating life can be for people with Brain Injuries cuz people expect too much from them since their injuries are not known. I was in a deep coma for over 3.5 months and friends & family expect things with me to be different.

  2. He’s gotta do what he has to do. Nascar is nothing like it was, all the sponsors are benefiting not the fans. All the bickering and fight is getting old. There was a time I never missed a race…now I could care less, nothing exciting about any of it. SAD

  3. I have always been a kyle bush fan.i will so miss him driving the 18.wish they could get something pulled won’t be the same. So will miss that m and m’s car.

    1. Kyle has been my all time favorite also!!! I will ALWAYS BE HIS FAN! In really like Ty Gibbs too but I don’t think I will feel comfortable cheering for Ty I’m the 18!!

  4. Lewis Hamilton made a similar type of move in F1 and we saw how that worked for him. Kaulig has a great opportunity, don’t screw it up.
