INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kurt Busch will test an Indy car for Andretti Autosport at Indianapolis Motor Speedway next week.
The 2004 NASCAR champion was at Indy this week testing tires for Goodyear with NASCAR team Furniture Row Racing. An agreement was apparently made with Michael Andretti to return next Thursday and turn laps at the famed speedway two days before the track opens for Indianapolis 500 practice.
Andretti will be on hand to get Busch up to speed.
Andretti says he got to know Busch some last year when the two were working together on a different project.
Busch says in a statement he’s interested in exploring the possibility of someday running the Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 on the same day.
