Busch announced this weekend he would be leaving Stewart-Haas Racing after five years with the team.

Today Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) announced a partnership with Monster Energy, for the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season. He replaces Jamie McMurray, a longtime driver for the outfit. "Along with Monster Energy, winning races, and competing at the highest level, it's what we are all about". Monster Energy will continue to be Busch's primary sponsor.

"Ganassi's forward thinking approach is why I have made a decision to commit all my years of Monster Energy Cup experience to CGR", Busch said.

In his five seasons behind the wheel of the No. 41 at Stewart-Haas Racing, Busch won six times and at least once per year. "Let's win, let's have fun!" "I'm looking forward to the future & new opportunities ahead!"

McMurray has been offered a leadership role at CGR in addition to an opportunity to drive a vehicle in the 2019 season-opening Daytona 500. I've always believed he's one of the most talented drivers on this planet. There was a point that, honestly, I looked at it, and I was like, 'I don't know that I want them to call me back.' I was fighting, because I thought it was the right thing to do, but I wanted to drive [for Ganassi].

"The Obaika Racing team is working hard through the winter to put fast cars on track next year, and I have every confidence that Tanner is going to work hard to improve every race and get the most out of our equipment".

Chip Ganassi Racing tweeted a video Tuesday, promoting Busch's arrival.

Busch's replacement behind the wheel of the #41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford has not yet been named, but Daniel Suarez has emerged as the likely candidate to drive that auto next season.

The 2019 season will be Busch's 20th in the NASCAR Cup Series. He was the 2004 premier series champion, the second-straight Cup Series title for team owner Jack Roush.

"We're finally taping into the pocket book of Gene Haas", Tony Stewart stated five years ago when he heard the surprise announcement.
