Kyle Busch, a two-time Cup Series champion with JGR, faces a difficult situation because his primary sponsor, M&M, will leave the Cup Series after this year. The team has been trying hard to get a sponsorship agreement to enable Joe Gibbs to maintain the driver in the No. 18 Camry. Still, this effort has been ineffective, placing the team and the driver in an unpleasant position.

A definite future Hall of Famer and one of the most accomplished drivers in NASCAR after Richard Petty, Kyle Busch has a history and legacy that is Unmatched. Most of the stories and legends that’s been told about the veterans come from his 15 years of domination in the No:18 Toyota Camry, but all that will become a thing of the past if the 60 times cup race winner is forced to switch rides from 2023.

The continuous contract negotiations have definitely played a part in the inconsistencies and underwhelming performance that the fans are witnessing from the veteran as he is yet to secure either a convincing win, as his only win was a lucky finish at Bristol, or a solid race finish. Now the veteran has come forth to address the concerns over his current situation.

Kyle Busch talking about his contract situation and a potential move next season, acknowledged in Watkins glen that he would like to have a seat next year in a team that has a legit shot at winning races. He added that there is a significant change coming to the life of him and his family, though he wants to spend some quality time with them amidst his busy schedule.

“[Competing for wins is] certainly top of the list. 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.

Kyle Busch added that e is weighing in on questions such as whether he should choose a team where he can fight for wins from the start or a team that will become competitive as the season progresses. He added this makes the situation more confusing and complicated though they are opportunities out there.

Is it worth it to go run around and not have an opportunity to win right away versus building something versus jumping in something that can win? All those questions are certainly being weighed. Again, that’s also why it’s not so simple and easy. Thankfully there are opportunities out there,” Kyle Busch added.

He pointed out that though there are some cup race slots available for him from 2023, it won’t be the same as what it has been for him over the last 15 years “There are Cup jobs available, but again, it will not look the same as what it has for the last 15 years,”.

When asked if he had received any clarification regarding the possibility of staying with JGR and driving the No. 18 Toyota again the following year, Busch stated, “That has not been told to me. Not yet,”.
