16197Jpg
Roush Racing announced today that Winston Cup drivers Kurt Busch and Matt Kenseth have been signed to new multi-year contracts to continue driving for Roush Racing in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series.

"The renewed commitments that Kurt and Matt have made to the organization, and the reciprocal commitments that Jack Roush has made to them, will help solidify the already strong momentum that Roush Racing has in the industry," said Geoff Smith, Roush Racing president.

"All Roush Racing drivers are now signed for long term periods, which will keep 'silly season' disruptions to a minimum this year and allow all of our teams to focus solely on racing and building sponsorship value," Smith continued.

"Our team is really solid," said Matt Kenseth. "Both Robbie [crew chief Reiser] and I have signed long term contracts with Roush Racing because we know and appreciate that Jack Roush will provide us with everything we need to stay competitive."

"Jack Roush put me on an accelerated program, found Jimmy Fennig to lead my team, found Newell Rubbermaid to fund us, and continues to give us everything we need to compete at the championship level," said Kurt Busch. "Both Jimmy and I have signed up for the long haul and very much want to win Roush Racing's first Winston Cup championship."

Said owner Jack Roush, "The signing of Matt and Kurt, along with the agreements already in place with our other outstanding drivers, completes our competitive Winston Cup structure and provides us with an unmatched and quite remarkable line up for the next several years."

Roush Racing is a subsidiary of Livonia, Mich.-based Roush Industries, and fields nine teams in NASCAR competition, including Mark Martin, Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch and Jeff Burton in Winston Cup; Stanton Barrett and Burton in Busch Grand National; and Jon Wood and Carl Edwards in the Craftsman Truck Series.
