Busch is trying to put together a sponsorship deal to do the Indy 500/Coca-Cola 600 "double" next season. He'd like to run the 500 with Andretti Autosport, the team that tested him at Indianapolis last May, but needs funding to put together the team.

"Sponsorship is the name of the game," Busch said. "Everybody wants good advertising partners to do great things with, and I think this is a unique opportunity. We're out there looking and we're out there promoting and we'll see if things come together the right way."

ALLMENDINGER'S TOUR: The whirlwind for AJ Allmendinger continued this week as he tested at Watkins Glen with JTG Daughtery Racing, a day after running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Phoenix Racing.

Last weekend also saw Allmendinger run the Grand-Am race for Michael Shank Racing at Indy, where he led laps in the Indianapolis 500 and might have had a chance to win had his seatbelt not come undone.

"It's just been really cool being at Indy and realizing I raced three different types of cars at Indy this year," Allmendinger said. "To be able to drive for so many different teams and so many different series has been a lot of fun.

"I'm going to run the MotoGP (motorcycle) race at Indy as well," he joked.

There was an adjustment, though, testing the No. 47 at Watkins Glen, which he'll drive Aug. 11 for JTG.

"Just getting used to the team. This will be our third race working together," he said. "I feel fortunate for a lot of reasons. Team owners are taking a chance for me to drive their race cars, for sponsors to come aboard. Here, we'll have Scott Products on the car, and they've been a longtime sponsor of the 47 team. For them to want me to be a part of their team, be a part of their product, it means a lot. It's been such a great year."

Still, Allmendinger doesn't know what the future holds.

"This year's been a lot of fun kind of jumping back and forth," Allmendinger said. "But next year I hope I've got a full-time ride in something. I'm just looking at what's the best opportunity to go out there and win races, have fun with a race team, just enjoy racing. That's something for me this year I've really kind of gained again."
