Busch apologizes, says still talking to teams

INDIANAPOLIS - Kyle Busch said Sunday he regrets the comments he made regarding his situation at Hendrick Motorsports.

Busch said he was sorry for remarks made at Daytona and Chicago, in which he said he was on the outside looking in at Hendrick and accused his HMS teammates of not working with him during races.

"I've started a lot of it myself," Busch said. "I've made some mistakes and opened up my mouth too much."

During a team meeting at Indianapolis, he said he apologized to his teammates and crew chief Alan Gustafson.

"It's just been a difficult time," Busch said. "Everything just feels like it's more under a microscope. When things don't go the right way, you tend to think they're not helping you or wanting to help you because you're not going to be there. But that's completely untrue."

Busch also denied rumors that he was close to signing with Joe Gibbs Racing, as did JGR president J.D. Gibbs. Busch is not close to signing with any team, he said, and is still talking with five teams - three seriously.

Those apparently include Gibbs, Dale Earnhardt Inc. and Evernham Motorsports.

At Chicago, two weeks before the Indianapolis race, Busch estimated he would make a decision in two-to-six weeks. But he backed away from any sort of deadline on Sunday.

"It's not necessarily a timetable that you can really pinpoint on this thing because it's a career-defining choice," he said. "You can't just say, well this is where I want to go. You really have to sit down and look at everything, review it and figure it out and look at the best possible choice for myself."

Busch said he hasn't talked money with any teams, and guessed he'd meet with each candidate a couple more times before making a decision. His preference is for a three-to-five year contract.

The entire process, he said, has been "a pain in the neck. And it's not a lot of fun."
