Denny Hamlin on the positive influence of Kurt Busch

23X1 Racing is one of the most ambitious teams in NASCAR. Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin have created a team worthy of respect, and their project has only just begun. Kurt Busch is also part of this great team. Hamlin praised the influence that Busch has.

“I think it’s been good going to two. Certainly, Kurt (Busch) did what we asked him to do coming into this year and he’s been a great teammate with Bubba (Wallace) and I think it helped us share some resources.

Certainly, there has been some efficiencies gained from one to two with personnel,” Denny Hamlin said.

Kurt Busch's impact

The team also needed a quality driver like Kurt Busch. With his arrival, security was created.

“So I think that certainly there are positives to it, I don’t see any negatives going to two from one, but we really like the addition of Kurt and that was really the catalyst for us starting a second is having someone like Kurt as a great veteran and mentor and really evaluate how is our team,” Denny Hamlin added.

Hamlin emphasized how helpful Busch was to him, and how easy he made things for him. Busch is currently unable to be part of the competition, but they hope that their cooperation will last for a long time. “I’m so focused on the 11 car and what I need to do to make my team better that I can’t really take time off to see how they’re operating over there so Kurt’s really been the person that’s really helped with that.

I think it’s been really good and obviously, we really hope to have him back in the 45 car this year and next year and we plan on Kurt running unless he tells you all otherwise,” Denny Hamlin Explained.
