Busch shutting down Nationwide team

Kyle Busch said he is closing his Nationwide Series team because of a lack of sponsorship. Parker Kligerman ran the entire season for Busch in the #77 Toyota and had 13 top-10 finishes. Busch drove the car in 2012, when he went winless in the Nationwide Series. He went back to driving Joe Gibbs Racing's cars in Nationwide this year — winning 12 times — and used Kligerman in his Kyle Busch Motorsports car. Busch also fields three entries in the Truck Series and won Friday night's race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It clinched the owners' championship for Busch, who won eight races as an owner. Busch had six victories and Darrell Wallace Jr. and 17-year-old Erik Jones also won for the team. Associated Press/ESPN
