Fellow NASCAR Car Drivers Express Support For Kurt Busch

Sunday morning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kurt Busch will take his run at history when he attempts to complete the “double.” If Busch is successful is running in the Indy 500 and then the Coca Cola 600, he will become only the fourth driver in the history of the sport to accomplish that feat. The other drivers who were able to do it before him were John Andretti, Robby Gordon and his boss Tony Stewart.

As Busch prepares for his big day some of his fellow NASCAR drivers have offered their support. A handful of drivers recent spoke with FOX Sports and had the following to say about Busch and the “double.”

Jamie McMurray:

My take on what Kurt is doing as a race fan is that it’s awesome. I can’t wait to get up Sunday morning, turn the Indy 500 on and watch Kurt’s day. We can all remember Tony (Stewart) and Robby Gordon did it and watching those guys to see how their races goes, them getting on the helicopter — and then to show up and race here. I’m excited about it, and I hope other fans — whether you’re and IndyCar fan or a NASCAR fan — are excited to watch his whole day as well. I think it’s really cool what he’s doing.

Jimmie Johnson:

I’m proud of Kurt. He’s doing an awesome job.
