Kyle Busch has chosen to drive for Joe Gibbs Racing next season.
A source close to Busch tells The Associated Press that the driver selected Gibbs after a seven-week search that began when Hendrick Motorsports released the 22-year-old driver to make room for Dale Earnhardt Junior next season.
Two car owners who had actively pursued Busch told the AP that Busch informed them today he had not selected their teams.
Gibbs currently fields cars for two-time series champion Tony Stewart, Denny Hamlin and J.J. Yeley, who is in the final year of his contract. Busch is expected to replace Yeley, who has not put up the results necessary to keep his ride.
