Ty Gibbs, an Xfinity Series driver, will drive 23XI Racing’s No. 45 car in place of Kyle Busch. Gibbs, who is making his Cup debut, is the grandson of renowned Washington Commanders head coach and NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs.
Due to his collision with a barrier during qualifying on Saturday and what seemed to be a concussion, Kurt Busch will not be competing at Pocono on Sunday.
While Denny Hamlin, a driver in the JGR Cup Series, is a co-owner of 23XI Racing, Gibbs, 19, participates in the Xfinity Series for his grandfather.
Busch achieved success in Kansas in May, and as a result of that achievement, he will take part in the Cup Series playoffs this fall. He will be given a waiver by NASCAR so he can still compete in the playoffs despite missing the race.
Busch is now positioned 14th in the standings and has eight top-10 finishes in the first 20 races of the season. Kurt Busch won’t be taking part in Sunday’s Cup Series event.
The driver of 23XI Racing did not yet have the go-ahead to compete, according to NASCAR, who announced this on Sunday morning, citing the fact that he was still exhibiting concussion-like symptoms.
Busch asserts that his recuperation is doing well, but he won’t be prepared to compete on Sunday afternoon.
Busch competed in his first race in a dwarf car at Pahrump Valley Speedway when he was 14 years old. His father gave him a seat in the Dwarf car. In addition, Busch took part in the IMCA Modified race.
On Sunday morning, NASCAR sent a statement stating that the driver of 23XI Racing had not yet been given the go-ahead to compete due to continuing concussion-like symptoms. Despite the depressing news, health should always come first.
Roush Racing announced Kurt Busch’s promotion to the Winston Cup Series during the 2000 campaign in order for him to replace Chad Little in the No. 97 Ford for the 2001 campaign. When Little was ultimately released early from his contract at Dover in September 2000, Busch took over the No. 97 John Deere-sponsored Ford.
Busch participated in seven of the final eight races with Jeff Hammond serving as his crew chief (Little drove at Talladega). Busch’s best finish was 13th at Charlotte, where he finished.
Busch had his big break after Chris Trickle was hurt in an unsolved shooting. The Star Nursery staff looked for a Trickle substitute for the No. 70 team.
The NASCAR AutoZone Elite Division Southwest Series Rookie of the Year was awarded to Busch’s squad in 1998. As a result, he won the series championship in 1999.
He was given a ride in the Craftsman Truck Series after excelling in a Roush Racing “Gong Show” audition. In the 99th Ford F-150, he participated. He finished second to teammate Greg Biffle in the championship standings, finished with four victories, and was voted Rookie of the Year.

At the 2007 NEXTEL All-Star Challenge, Busch and his younger brother Kyle openly sever their ties. With 10 laps left in the race, the Busches were competing against one another when their vehicles collided, eliminating both from contention for the win.
Although Kevin Harvick won the race, the media and the general public were more interested in the argument between Kurt and Kyle. Kyle and Kurt got into a fight on the pit road and were upset during the celebrations after the race.
Because the team hasn’t been able to secure a replacement sponsor for him in the aftermath of M&M Mars’ probable departure, Kyle Busch’s discussions to re-sign with JGR at the end of the 2022 season appear to be on shaky ground.
