DENVER — Kurt Busch is ready for yet another new ride.
Furniture Row Racing has hired Busch to drive for the Colorado-based team in 2013. Busch will replace Regan Smith in the No. 78 Chevrolet.
Busch was the 2004 NASCAR champion, but he split with Penske Racing at the end of last season because of his many off-track incidents. He spent this season driving for Phoenix Racing in the Sprint Cup series and his brother’s Kyle Busch Motorsports in the Nationwide Series, where he won twice.
