Kurt Busch has no plans to run Indy 500 again

No more Indy for Busch

Last year, #41-Kurt Busch completed one of the most impressive feats in recent auto racing history when he finished sixth in the Indianapolis 500. Not only was it Busch's first Indy 500, it was his first open-wheel race of any kind and he won Rookie of the Year honors after a tremendous drive against top-notch competition. Just don't expect him back at the 500 anytime soon.

"I don't know what the future will bring outside the NASCAR Sprint Cup with Monster, but with this synergy, it's so powerful, I don't see a need to go back and run Indy, unless Monster wanted to go do something such as that," Busch told FOXSports.com.

Busch said there are practical obstacles to an Indy return. Andretti Autosport, the team he drove for at Indy in 2014, is a Honda team. Stewart-Haas Racing is a Chevrolet team and Chevrolet is very active in the Verizon IndyCar Series.

"We had an addendum in our contract before, in case something swapped, but that was 2014," Busch said. "We've yet to work on any of those details, because we want to support everybody the proper way. The No. 1 focus is Stewart-Haas. No. 2 is Haas Automation and Monster Energy. No. 3 is Chevrolet. And so we want to respect everybody's agenda." Fox Sports
