Richard Childress Racing Considering Kurt Busch?

Kurt Busch during NASCAR Media Day at Daytona International Speedway on February 16, 2012 in Daytona Beach, is reporting that Richard Childress Racing is considering Kurt Busch for a fourth team, if sponsorship can be found. Team owner Richard Childress said he will know his 2013 driver lineup by mid-October. As of now, the plan is to field cars for Kevin Harvick, Paul Menard, and Jeff Burton.

Childress said:

I have talked to Kurt about running a full season with a fourth team if we had sponsorship. He’s a very, very talented driver. I like Kurt. Kurt and I would get along. There’s just not a sponsor out there today that can fill a complete car.

While Busch has proven that he is a talented driver, securing sponsorship for Busch may be a difficult task. Busch’s volatile personality often gets him in trouble with the media, which could put off a potential sponsor. Following several high profile meltdowns last season, Busch was released from the Penske Racing Shell Pennzoil team. Still, Childress isn’t very concerned.

Childress said:

He and I would get along, and he would listen to me. One thing he needs is somebody, when he does do wrong, to discuss how to handle it.
