CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Furniture Row Racing never stood a chance at keeping Kurt Busch once Gene Haas began courting the 2004 NASCAR champion. A tremendous talent behind the wheel, Busch's terrible temper led to what was thought to be a career-killing moment in 2011 when he was fired by Penske Racing. It was Furniture Row that rescued him from the back of the pack with six races remaining last season and gave him a chance to be competitive again.
