SIGNED AND KEPT IN PLASTIC. ROOKIE YEAR IN 2001. Busch (97) and Joe Nemechek. (01) at Talladega Superspeedway. Roush Racing announced during the 2000 season that Busch was being promoted to the Winston Cup Series to replace Chad Little. In Roush’s No. 97 Ford for the 2001 season. Little ended up being released early, and Busch took over the No. Sponsored Ford at Dover in September 2000. Busch ran seven of the final eight races (Little drove at Talladega) with crew chief Jeff Hammond. Busch’s best finish was a 13th-place finish at Charlotte. Busch took over the No. 97 full-time in 2001, and ran for Rookie of the Year honors. After John Deere left the team, the No. 97 began the 2001 season unsponsored. After the team signed Rubbermaid. To a multi-year contract later in the spring, Busch scored three Top 5’s and six Top 10’s that year. He and Dale Earnhardt. Made contact in the 2001 Daytona 500. Earnhardt promptly flipped Busch the bird. Or as described by lap-by-lap commentator Mike Joy. In the Fox Sports. Booth, he simply was telling him Kurt, you’re number one. To this day, Busch recalls this as the only time he encountered Earnhardt on the track it was also the last time he and Earnhardt competed in the same race as a result of Earnhardt’s fatal crash. On the last lap. Busch’s best finish was third at the spring Talladega race, which was three weeks after scoring his first career Top 5 finish at Texas (fourth), and he added a fifth-place in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis. He also won the pole for the Southern 500 at Darlington, where he led 74 laps before a late-race brush with the wall took him to the garage. A month later, he led 38 laps at Martinsville before contact with Ricky Rudd. Cut his left-rear tire; heavy traffic behind him made matters worse, as Busch had to complete a lap and a half before he could get to the pits. During the delay, the tire carcass wrapped itself around the axle, costing him several laps. Overheating problems halted a strong performance at Rockingham in October, where he led 45 laps. Busch then failed to qualify at Atlanta in November. The item “KURT BUSCH JOHN DEERE MOTORSPORTS BALL CAP SIGNED” is in sale since Sunday, March 28, 2021.
