CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Kurt Busch has a new ride.
NASCAR's most polarizing figure announced he'll drive the No. 51 car for Phoenix Racing and owner James Finch for the entire 2012 Sprint Cup season.
Busch says in a release ``after entertaining a lot of quality offers, there's no better place for me.''
Busch has won 24 Sprint Cup races, as well as the 2010 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.
Finch, who celebrated his 20th year as a NASCAR team owner in 2011, says, ``all we want to do is win'' and with Busch ``we have a shot every week.''
Busch, who has previously driven Fords and Dodges, will drive the No. 51 Phoenix Construction Chevrolet Impala in 2012. His first race will be the non-points Budweiser Shootout at Daytona, Fla.
