Two times Cup series champion Kyle Buschs Joe Gibbs Racing exit toward the end of the 2022 season is still a hot topic in the Cup garage.  Busch’s 15 years of service at JHR came to an end after the team management failed to replace his long-time primary sponsor M&M.  Busch left the TRD garbage to join Richard Childress Racing to drive the No:8 car.

During a last month’s episode of Dirty Mo Media’s “Door Bumper Clear” podcast, NASCAR insider Casey Boat came that JGR owner Joe Gibbs offered his own money to Busch for a contract extension after the struggles to find a sponsor. The KBM owner refused to accept the [personal money of Gibbs for the extension resulting in the exit.

The recent podcast episode, ahead of the 2023 Daytona 500, discussed the revelation with Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s former spotter T.J. Majors, who was the guest host. The NASCAR veteran was astonished to learn about the reports and claimed that the information was inadequate. He backed his argument by giving the imaginary example of NFL legend Tom Brady refusing to sign a $50-million-dollar deal.  

The show’s co-hosts and former spotter of Cup legends Jeff Burton and Clint Bowyer, Brett Griffin, pointed out that JGR and Busch should stop discussing the exit publicly. He pointed out that both parties does not understand the basics of PR 101. He said, “Yeah, PR 101 here, man! Just take the high road. Why are we still talking about this?”

It’s a new chapter, a new team…Why are you and Gibbs still going back and forth? Why is Toyota still involved? Why are we still aloft? Take the high road. Let the chapter close. Toyota, Joe Gibbs, Kyle Busch need to take the high road publically and move on,” Griffin added.

During the NASCAR off-season, Busch pointed out that he wishes to become the NASCAR version of Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. The two NFL legends left the teams they played for most of their career to join their rivals and win the championship. He wants to win the tournament with RCR, a team chasing its glory days.

I’m kind of looking at it as the Tom Brady /Peyton Manning aspect where they left great teams, great organizations where they won championships, and they went on and were able to win championships somewhere else. I’d like to think that I still have that opportunity to be able to do that with RCR,” Kyle Busch said.
