Jenson Button has been forced to turn down the chance to return to the NASCAR Cup Chicago Street Race as he‘s too busy to take up an offer from sponsor Mobil.
Button returns to full-time competition in sportscar racing in 2024, making his debut in the Daytona 24 Hours with Acura this weekend before embarking on a full season with Jota in a customer Porsche 963.
“I was asked to do a race this year in a really good car, but I just can‘t. There‘s so much racing to be done and I‘m also doing TV work with Sky still, and things with other sponsors, so it‘s enough this year.”
But when pushed if he might come back to it in future, he replied: “If they still want to have me! Mobil 1 offered me the drive this year, so they‘re looking for other options, but I couldn‘t do the one they offered me [Chicago] as I‘m at the British Grand Prix.”
