Despite reports to the contrary, Kurt Busch will drive for the Sprint Cup championship in 2012, according to FoxSports.com. There had been speculation that Busch would run for the Nationwide Series championship. Under the rule instituted last year, drivers must declare the series in which they want to run for championship points. Drivers can not compete for more than one title in NASCAR’s top three series.
Busch will compete in both series with Phoenix Racing.
