Four-Time Nextel Cup Race Winner to Finish Season in No. 5 Chevrolet
CONCORD, N.C., (June 13, 2007) - Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 5 Chevrolet in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series for Hendrick Motorsports and four-time Nextel Cup race winner, will depart Hendrick Motorsports at the conclusion of the 2007 season.
The following is a statement from Busch regarding the decision to leave:
"We had been working on a contract extension for me to remain at Hendrick Motorsports, but after prolonged negotiations, we mutually agreed that a fresh start was in order. I have been granted a release after the 2007 season.
"I have tremendous respect for Mr. Hendrick and everyone at Hendrick Motorsports. It's where I grew up, and I have a lot of great memories.
"I kind of feel like I'm graduating. I'm excited about my future, and I know a lot of opportunities await because of what everyone at Hendrick did for me - on the track and off.
"I still have a job to do this year, and will give it my all - just as I've always done - to make sure we put the No. 5 car in victory lane a few more times before the year is out."
