Kyle Busch Says Negotiations Continue with Joe Gibbs Racing

Kyle Busch said Saturday that he is willing to re-sign for under his value on the NASCAR Cup Series free agent market, adding that “there are a lot of sleepless nights” as the contract negotiations have crept along.

“I don’t think money has ever been the objective or ever been the issue,” Busch said. “Obviously, I know what the sports landscape is, I know what’s happening. The talk from my side was that I know there need to be concessions made and to race for under my market value, and I’ve accepted that and told everybody that and just trying to see where all that lies.”

Busch reiterated Saturday that he has been in discussions with other teams as he weighs his options for next season. But Busch also restated that his primary focus is brokering a deal that keeps him in JGR’s No. 18 Toyota, the seat he’s occupied since 2008.
