Kurt Thomas Busch (born August 4, 1978) is an American NASCAR and NHRA driver. He drives the No. 22 Shell Oil Company/Pennzoil Dodge Charger in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and will race on an "opportunity permitting" basis in the Pro Stock division of NHRA. He is a third-generation race car driver, his father Tom won several NASCAR sanctioned events, and he is the older brother of Kyle Busch, who is also a NASCAR driver.

Busch won the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Championship in 2004, the first ever season using the "Chase for the Cup" points format, finishing just eight points ahead of Jimmie Johnson. With a 2006 win in the Nationwide Series, Busch became one of only 22 drivers with a win in all three of NASCAR's top divisions: Sprint Cup Series; Nationwide Series; and Camping World Truck Series.
