TALLADEGA, Ala. -- (AP) -- Kyle Busch Motorsports will field a Nationwide Series team in 2012.

Busch says the Nationwide car will be in additional to the Truck Series entries he already runs.

Busch says he has secured sponsorship, but did not reveal where the funding is coming from. He also didn't announce the driver, and says he'll run some of the Nationwide races in 2012.

Busch's announcement comes when some team owners are scaling back. Kevin Harvick is shutting down his truck teams and transferred his Nationwide program to Richard Childress Racing. Red Bull Racing likely is closing its Sprint Cup Series operation at the end of the year.
