Kurt Busch Is Not Out Of A Job

All the Motorsports media outlets jumped on the fact that Stewart-Haas Racing will not be picking up the option on his current contract for next season.  Even after Stewart-Haas Racing stated on Twitter that they expected Kurt to return next year, still others insisted that he would be “out of a job.”  This is simply not the case.

Yes, Kurt is a free agent.
This means he could entertain offers from other teams.
It also means that Stewart-Haas Racing could sign him to a new contract with different stipulations.  I think this is the most likely scenario.

It’s what’s called a contract year for him.  These things happen to everyone in the sport.  People sign new contracts all the time, even if it’s with the same team.  Kurt will be OK.
