Kyle Busch racing with RCR Racing at Daytona 500

Daytona 500 is only two days away, and one driver will be kicking off the NASCAR season with a brand new team.

Kyle Busch signed with RCR Racing and traded in his No. 18 Toyota for the No. 8 Chevrolet.

The move to RCR came as a complete shock to the racing world, especially because of the heated history between Busch and team owner Richard Childress.

However, Busch believes the move is best for him and will lead to more success on the track.

It comes after 15 seasons as the face of Joe Gibbs Racing.

“I bet you I’m going to have to think about when we come down pit road for the first time. At least there isn’t going to be a No. 18 sign board out there for me to pull in to. It’s no longer here, it’s just not gone, they retired it because I’m too good, just kidding. But to see the 8. Just don’t forget, find the 8.”

Back to that heated history—Childress infamously punched Busch during an altercation in 2011. The two long ago made amends, but the move to that team was still something Busch never saw coming.
