Kurt Busch has signed a multi-year deal to drive for Stewart-Haas Racing.

Busch, 35, told FOX Sports on Monday, "It's inked."

Busch, the 2004 Sprint Cup champion, has 24 career Cup wins and currently drives for Furniture Row Racing. He is 12th in the Sprint Cup points standings.

"This is the situation that every driver wants to be in," Busch said. "To have an owner like Gene Haas calling and asking you to come and race how you know how to race and that is to win. Gene is giving me that opportunity.

"Having the powerhouse of (Tony) Stewart as a teammate and Kevin Harvick as a teammate makes this all the more intriguing."
