Busch gets new ride with Phoenix Racing

Kurt Busch has a new ride.

NASCAR's most polarizing figure announced he'll drive the No. 51 car for Phoenix Racing and owner James Finch for the entire 2012 Sprint Cup season.

Busch says in a release "after entertaining a lot of quality offers, there's no better place for me."

Busch has won 24 Sprint Cup races, as well as the 2010 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.

Finch, who celebrated his 20th year as a NASCAR team owner in 2011, says, "all we want to do is win" and with Busch "we have a shot every week."

Busch, who has previously driven Fords and Dodges, will drive the No. 51 Phoenix Construction Chevrolet Impala in 2012. His first race will be the non-points Budweiser Shootout at Daytona, Fla.
