This Wednesday Kurt Busch has confirmed his withdrawal from Richmond in the NASCAR Cup Series, he is absent for the fourth consecutive time.
After Pocono, Indianapolis and Michigan, Kurt Busch will miss a fourth race in a row, in Richmond. The 23XI Racing driver is still not recovered from his concussion suffered during his accident during qualifying for the Pocono event.
Through a long message on his Twitter account, Kurt Busch indicated that he is making progress and that he will continue everything to return to one hundred percent in order to resume competition.
As a result, Ty Gibbs will replace Kurt Busch at Richmond in the #45 23XI Racing Toyota Camry. This will be the fourth straight time that Joe Gibbs’ grandson has replaced the 2004 NASCAR Premier Division champion.
Kurt Busch absent in Richmond, it is also on the side of the general classification that we must turn. If his place in the top 30 is acquired, his place in the playoffs is not at all, although he benefits from the medical joker of NASCAR.
Victorious in Kansas, Kurt Busch is one of fifteen different winners this year. However, due to his repeated absence, he occupies the twentieth place of the general classification, the worst among the winners in 2022. Consequently, he is at the mercy of a non-qualification, if two new pilots, better classified than him come to prevail by the end of the regular season. To date, Ryan Blaney, Martin Truex Jr; Erik Jones, Aric Almirola and his teammate Bubba Wallace are better ranked than him without a win.
