So a lot of folks, including yours truly, thought that Kurt being kicked aside by SHR and signing a one-year deal with CGR was a sign of desperation, and that this would be his swan song. Then Kurt turns around and is the best Chevy out there, even better than his new teammate Larson who people keep expecting to make a jump. Maybe he just works well in this high-grip package. I can't see any reason why Chip doesn't keep Kurt around, so long as he keeps producing, as long as Kurt wants. I for one really grew to like Kurt during his stint at SHR and appreciate his heel-face turn. Here's hoping he sticks around as long as Harvick and Jimmie.
