Busch Open To Trying F1 “At Some Point,” Agent Says

Following the reports that the newly formed Formula One team based in Charlotte, NC, USF1, would consider Kyle Busch for an F1 ride, Jeff Dickerson, Busch’s agent, was quoted as saying:

[Busch] would certainly leave the door open to try it out at some point. At the same time, he’s currently focused on winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series championships for Joe Gibbs Racing.

Busch is under contract with Joe Gibbs Racing through 2010. USF1 is planning to go racing in 2010.

The thought of Busch racing in F1 is not that far-fetched. Unlike some other drivers who jump from one type of racing to another, Busch’s potential move wouldn’t be motivated by money.

Instead, I think that Busch would be intrigued to see how he compares to the world’s drivers in a completely different form of racing. It could be a way for him to show just how talented he is.

That’s not to say he will leave NASCAR, but I’m sure the idea is certainly intriguing.

Indy Racing League driver Danica Patrick and Red Bull Racing’s Scott Speed are others who have been linked to the ride. Also hearing that Marco Andretti’s name has been  mentioned, too.
