Daytona Beach, FL, United States (4E Sports) – Kyle Busch has signed a multiyear deal with Joe Gibbs Racing back in December.

He will make official announcements on the Charlotte Motor Speedway Media Tour that runs from Jan. 21-24.

JGR president J.D. Gibbs told ESPN.com late last season that he was optimistic Busch would re-sign with the team and made it clear he wanted a new deal “sooner rather than later.”

Busch, involved in a 12-car wreck during Friday afternoon’s session, side-stepped questions when asked about the deal by USA Today.

He is coming off a disappointing season in which he had only one win, missed the Chase and finished 13th in the points standings. He has 24 career Cup victories and a series-record 51 wins in the Nationwide Series.

Busch’s decision to re-sign leaves 2004 Cup champion Kurt Busch, Earnhardt Ganassi Racing’s Juan Pablo Montoya and Stewart-Haas Racing’s Ryan Newman as the biggest free agents on the market.

Richard Childress Racing’s Kevin Harvick reportedly already signed with SHR for 2014 at the end of last season.
