Twitter Reacts To Kurt Busch's Move To Stewart-Haas Racing
However, Tuesday's formal announcement did shed some light on the decision-making process to add "The Outlaw" to an organization that already featured a cast of colorful characters.
When asked by a fan, Harvick made it clear there was no love lost for Kurt's brother Kyle in this since-deleted tweet.
In case you need reminding, Kevin and Kyle haven't always seen eye-to-eye.
Harvick's original tweet caused quite the stir among a few fellow competitors.
Poor Michael was just an innocent bystander.
FOX Sports 1's Danielle Trotta was on the scene at SHR for Wednesday's NASCAR Race Hub at 12p ET.

Former NASCAR driver Andy Lally pointed out reputation may not tell the whole story when it comes to Busch.
Ive seen all the videos & heard the stories. But honestly, when I was there, Kurt was very nice & gave me great advice a lot. Happy for him.— Andy Lally (@AndyLally) August 27, 2013
On a roll, Bowyer noted Gene Haas was close to being the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter. Maybe next time, Gene.
Hopefully Kurt and the SHR crew guys will get along better than they did at Darlington in last year at Darlington.
