It was a soap opera that had been percolating for several months, in fact speculation started as an undercurrent when Longtime Busch and JGR partner M&M Mars announced last season that this would be their final season in NASCAR.

That sponsor announcement  started a journey that ended Tuesday with the 2 time Cup Champion’s announcement that he was joining Richard Childress Racing in 2023.

But there remains several  issues yet to be resolved.

On this week’s Wind Tunnel we will attempt to unpack the obvious and not so obvious ramifications of Kyle Busch’s move.

The Athletic’s Jordan Bianchi was one of the first to break the story.

Jack and Jordan will explore the event’s timeline, the “domino effect” as well Richard Childress’s comparison of Busch to Dale Earnhardt, Sr.

Bob Pockrass has a reputation for breaking news. His work on Fox has become such a reliable source that many of us follow the leads that he uncovers first.

Jack will visit with Bob and get his take on what this move by Kyle means for Toyota, JGR , Tyler Redick and Richard Childress Racing.

And Lenny Batycki of Performance Racing Network and their Short track show AT THE TRACK will take this week’s Victory Lap when he and Jack trace the short track implications. KBM Motorsports has been then launching pad for many aspiring young short trackers and

Batycki will weigh in on what if anything changes there.

All that and a comprehensive recap of the weekend’s racing events on this week’s Episode.
