IndyCar: Michael Andretti wants Kurt Busch back for 2015 Indy 500

Andretti Autosport team owner Michael Andretti admitted he'd like to have former NASCAR champion Kurt Busch back to drive in the 2015 Indy 500.

According to a report published on, Andretti said the door is open for Kurt Busch to return for a second consecutive attempt at “The Double” on May 24: Racing in the Indy 500 in the early afternoon and then competing in NASCAR's race at Charlotte Motor Speedway that evening.

“Right now, our focus is on putting a fourth car together but there is still a possibility for something to come together for Indy. I would love to do it with Kurt Busch again. He was a pleasure to work with,” Andretti told

“Busch was a real professional and learned a lot to the point where I think he would be a real factor in the race if we put something together. He did a hell of a job last year without experience.

“Now, with one more year of experience, I think Kurt Busch could be a real factor in the Indianapolis 500 in 2015,” Andretti added.
