In a move that should surprise no one, Kurt Busch will return to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2018.

Months of negotiating between Busch and SHR led to the team finally announcing today that the 2004 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion will return to the driver seat of the No. 41 on a one-year basis next season.

“Having my hard work pay off by winning the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and the 2017 Daytona 500 has given me the drive to continue conquering the NASCAR world,” Busch said. “I am excited to enter the 2018 racing season as a Monster Energy athlete where I will continue to drive my favorite manufacturer, the Ford Motor Company.”

With Busch’s intention to return, it finalizes Stewart-Haas Racing’s four-driver lineup for 2018 with Kevin Harvick piloting the No. 4, Aric Almirola taking over for Danica Patrick in the No. 10 and Clint Bowyer returning for his second season in the No. 14 Ford.

“Knowing that SHR is committed to optimum performance, I believe that I have everything I need to win races this season and take home the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup. I look forward to taking on next year with my team, sponsors and determination.”
