Joe Gibbs Racing picks 3 drivers for Busch’s Xfinity car
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Joe Gibbs Racing has planned for at least 14 Xfinity Series races that Kyle Busch will miss as he continues to recover from a broken right leg and broken left foot.
JGR has already hired David Ragan to drive Busch’s car in the Sprint Cup Series.
On Monday, the team said Denny Hamlin, Erik Jones and Boris Said will take turns at the wheel of Busch’s No. 54 Toyota in the Xfinity Series. Busch was injured during a crash in the Xfinity opener at Daytona.
Hamlin was given five races, beginning this weekend at Las Vegas.
Jones, who finished 13th this past weekend in the car at Atlanta, was given two more races. Said got seven races.
No timetable has been set for Busch’s return.
