Kurt Busch released a statement regarding the injury

Many wondered when Kurt Busch would be able to return again, but it won't happen anytime soon. Let's remember, Kurt Busch experienced concussion-like symptoms after a crash in one of the races (Pocono Raceway). He was replaced by Ty Gibbs who showed that he is a quality driver.

Busch released a statement on Thursday. Although he has a huge desire and will to return, it seems that it is not possible at the moment. Busch needs another recovery period in order to be maximally ready for the next challenges.

"As much as I want to be back in the car, the time is still not right. Over the last few weeks, I have focused all my efforts on getting better. And in order to fully focus my recovery on trying to be back for the playoffs, I will not be competing in the next two races at Watkins Glen and Daytona."

- Busch said. "The decision was not easy to make, but Busch has no other option but to wait for a while. It is obvious that he misses NASCAR, which is not surprising considering how long he has been on the NASCAR scene.

The priority at the moment is health. This decision was not an easy one, but the right one. I need to be racing at 100%. I owe that to everyone at 23XI, all of our partners, my fellow competitors, and the fans. It's my goal to be back in the No.

Kurt Busch on Ty Gibbs

Busch has great confidence in Ty Gibbs from whom he expects the best. Ty Gibbs has already taken advantage of the opportunity and caused a lot of public attention.

"I know Ty (Gibbs) will continue to do a great job in my absence, and I appreciate the competitiveness he's brought to the track. I continue to be incredibly grateful for all the well-wishes and support. It truly means a lot."

His brother, Kyle Busch, revealed a few days ago that he had spoken to Kurt and wished him a speedy recovery. “I want him to be able to do what he wants to do and go out the way he wants to go out. “ He and I just had a conversation where he’s like, ‘A Pocono qualifying crash isn’t necessarily the best way of going out.’ I’m like, ‘You’re 1,000 percent right.’ So I just wish him the best that he can continue to get better and feel better and get through the processes of what this is,” Kyle Busch said.
