Kurt Busch is exactly two weeks away from turning 44 years old, which doesn’t make him the oldest driver in the NASCAR Cup Series, but in his 22nd full-time season at the sport’s highest level, he’s up there.
However, while a guest on CBS Mornings on Thursday, Busch — who currently pilots the No. 45 23XI Racing Toyota for Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin’s team — hinted that his NASCAR retirement might be approaching.
“I’ve been in this sport 23 years, and this, to me, is like one of those kid-in-the-candy-store moments of, ‘I wanna be part of this.’ And I’m glad that I’m having the chance to drive next year for the team, and I might be done driving after that.”
