CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Kurt Busch has finalized a deal with Andretti Autosport that will make him the first driver in 10 years to attempt to run the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day.
Busch will try to qualify for the Indy 500 in a fifth car for Andretti. Should he make the May 25 race, Busch will travel to Charlotte Motor Speedway to fulfill his full-time job with Stewart-Haas Racing in NASCAR's longest event of the year.
Only John Andretti, Tony Stewart and Robby Gordon have attempted the grueling, 1,100-mile ''double'' and no driver has tried it since Gordon in 2004.
Stewart, Busch's new co-owner, is the only driver to complete the double. He did it in 2001, when he finished sixth at Indy and third at Charlotte.
