|Kyle signs new, long-term deal.|
Busch alienated officials of Toyota Racing Development by criticizing their engine program following the AAA 400 at Dover on September 30, but sources speaking on the condition of anonymity say the automaker will make a significant monetary contribution to ensure the 24-time Sprint Cup Series winner remains in a Toyota Camry for the next five years.
Busch finished 13th in championship points last season and failed to make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. He won just one race, the Capital City 400 at Richmond International Raceway in late April, and had 13 Top-5 and 20 Top-10 finishes in 36 starts.
Neither Busch nor JGR have commented on the new deal.
