KBM shuts down Nationwide teams

Kyle Busch Motorsports will suspend its Nationwide Series effort

in 2014.

“There’s absolutely no funding in this world,” team

owner Busch said on Saturday. “It really, really sucks.

That’s why we’re open and in business. But when the economy turns,

Joe Gibbs Racing shut my team down this offseason, Turner Scott

Motorsports is shutting down Nationwide teams this year. It’s not

due to lack of hard work, that’s for sure.”

KBM will continue to operate two Camping World Truck teams next

season. Darrell Wallace Jr., who won his first race at Martinsville

Speedway and finished eighth in the point standings, will compete

for the championship. Erik Jones, 17, who won last weekend at

Phoenix International Raceway in his fifth truck start, will run a

partial schedule.
