When Kyle Busch will return to NASCAR after a three-year absence

Kyle Busfield will be back in NASCAR.

Busch, who has not raced since winning his fourth NASCAR race at Homestead-Miami Speedway in May, will return next year for the Daytona 500.

Busfield will join the No. 27 Chip Ganassi Racing team for the Chase for the Sprint Cup, which kicks off next week.

He will be one of only two drivers in history to win at least four consecutive Sprint Cup races.

The other is Brian France, who won at Texas in 1999.

Busch’s No. 30 will be retired by the No, 31 Chip Ganas, which will be replaced by the team’s No, 29.

Busfields first season with the No., 31 Chip would have been the second consecutive season for Busfield, who finished fifth in the season’s final three races and fifth in both of his first two.

The No. 31 car will be based on the No.-3 car that Busfield drove in the NASCAR Truck Series in 2011.
