Kurt Busch will attempt to complete the racing double, which only three other drivers have tried, when he competes in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day.
Tom Jensen of Fox Sports passed along comments from the NASCAR star, who would join John Andretti, Robby Gordon and Tony Stewart as the only drivers to try it:
The two marquee events are scheduled for May 25. Busch will drive for the Andretti Autosport team in the Indy 500 in a race scheduled to start at 12 p.m. ET and then travel to Charlotte Motor Speedway for NASCAR's longest race, which is set for 6 p.m. ET.
The challenges that come along with trying to complete the double are numerous, which is why it's so rare despite the allure of competing in two major races.
