DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Kyle Busch says he’s deep into negotiations on a contract extension with Joe Gibbs Racing.
Busch has driven the No. 18 Toyota for Gibbs since 2008 and is in a contract year with the organization. He was surprised Wednesday to learn his contract status was public knowledge but indicated he’s not truly a free agent.
“We’re in discussions right now, we are talking. It’s all been agreed to,” Busch said. “It’s just a matter of putting pen to paper. We’re all good.”
Busch has won 47 Cup races with Gibbs and the 2015 championship. He’s raced for the title in each of the last four seasons.
