In an update on Thursday, Kurt Busch stated he will not compete in the final two races of the regular season at Watkins Glen and Daytona.
Busch has missed the last for races, dating back to Pocono, after a qualifying crash exiting Turn 3. He hopes to be back in time for the playoffs, which begin at Darlington in two weeks.
Ty Gibbs will continue to drive the No. 45 Toyota for 23XI Racing at Watkins Glen and Daytona.
