Kyle Busch confirmed Wednesday he sold his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team to Spire Motorsports.
The sale includes the assets of Kyle Busch Motorsports, as well as Rowdy Manufacturing’s chassis building operation and CNC machine shop.
“I’m at a different point in my life now than I was back in 2010,” Busch said. “My family has grown, my Cup Series team changed this year and our son’s racing schedule has become as demanding as my own. It’s important to me to be able to spend more time with my family and my team. It’ll be hard to walk away from the amazing facility we’ve built. However, I know at this point in my life and in my career that this is the correct decision.”
This season, KBM switched to Chevrolet and scaled back to two trucks. Chase Purdy drove the No. 4 Chevrolet full-time while Jack Wood anchored the No. 51 for 10 races so far.
Kyle Busch has made five starts in the No. 51 and won twice, including the organization’s 100th Truck Series win. That came at Pocono in July.
Also in the No. 51, William Byron earned two top-5 finishes in three starts and Matt Mills earned a fifth-place finish at Richmond – one of his two starts.
KBM intended to bring Purdy but it’s unclear what that will look like with the purchase.
