They started off the season winning the Daytona 500, but Busch has had just one top-five finish since then and is 14th in the Cup standings.
Team co-owner Gene Haas already foots the bill for about half of the Busch car, and the Clint Bowyer and Patrick cars do not have full sponsorship.
Ty Dillon, driving for Germain Racing, would be the natural replacement to race in Cup for his grandfather Richard Childress, although Germain does have a technical alliance with RCR. He will be in Sonoma this weekend as part of a sponsor commitment dating back to last year.
