Kurt Busch announced on Tuesday morning that he would, indeed, compete in the 2014 Indianapolis 500 IndyCar Series race at Indianpolis Motor Speedway on May 25, confirming plans to pull the Memorial Day weekend Indy 500/Coca-Cola 600 double.

Busch will drive for Andretti Autosport at Indianapolis before heading to Charlotte Motor Speedway to race his regular ride, the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet in the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

“I’m a fan of motorsports, a student of motorspors, and I view this as a challenge for myself,” Busch told The Associated Press. “Memorial Day weekend, the central focus of all motorsports is Monaco, Indianapolis and Charlotte, and this is a temendous opportunity to be right in the middle of it.”

Busch actually considered the double in 2013, completing the Indianapolis 500 rookie orientation program with Andretti Autosport. Hindsight being 20/20, Busch admits he now sometimes regrets the decision to not follow through last year.

Drivers who have attempted the double in the past include John Andretti, Robby Gordon, and one of Busch’s bosses at SHR, Tony Stewart. Stewart tried it twice, the last time being in 2001. Gordon was the last driver to attempt the double in 2004. Of those three, Stewart is the only driver to have finished both races, running a total of 1100 miles in 2001.

The car and sponsor for Busch’s foray into IndyCar Series racing will be revealed at a later date.
