Chip Ganassi Racing and Kurt Busch have confirmed that Busch will join the program beginning next season. That deal was only a one-year deal.

Busch officially announced via Twitter on Sunday evening that he would be leaving Stewart-Haas Racing, where he has driven the No. 41 Ford since 2014. Unfortunately, it's not in the cards for me to stay.

The 40-year-old will be the first driver to race for Ganassi with a NASCAR Cup title to his name.

Here is what Busch had to say about the opportunity to drive the #1 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet in the 2019 season, according to NASCAR. Monster Energy is set to continue to be his primary sponsor.

Berryhill made his Cup Series debut in 2018 with Obaika Racing, competing in the final two races of the season at ISM Raceway and Homestead-Miami Speedway. He has 30-career wins in 648 races, driving for teams including Roush Fenway Racing, Team Penske, Phoenix Racing, Furniture Row Racing, and SHR. Whether motocross, off-road, NASCAR, MMA, BMX, surf, snowboard, ski, skateboard, or the rock and roll lifestyle, Monster Energy is a brand that believes in authenticity and the core of what its sports, athletes and musicians represent.

He also won the 2017 Daytona 500 for team owners Gene Haas and Tony Stewart.

In August, it was speculated that Kurt Busch would not be returning to Stewart-Haas Racing in the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series season and that he would instead replace Jamie McMurray behind the wheel of the #1 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet.

· Man of Many Talents: Busch has not only won a race on every type of track that the series competes on, (superspeedway, intermediate, short-track and road course), he has also claimed a pole on each type of track, in addition to being named the 2018 MENCS Busch Pole Award victor for the most pole awards on the season, at five. "2019 is going to be a great year for this team".

"Tanner is a very intelligent and motivated young man, and I am very excited to what he can accomplish during his rookie season", said team owner, Victor Obaika. "Along with Monster Energy, winning races, and competing at the highest level, it's what we are all about. Let's win, let's have fun". "I was fighting for one of the [open] rides".
