"I couldn't have been more surprised," Jack Roush admitted Friday on NASCAR.com when talking about Busch's request.

"You've got a contract with me and you've made commitments to me and I've made commitments to other people I would expect you to keep your contract to me," he said he told Busch in a meeting on Tuesday.

Busch, the 2004 Nextel Cup champion, currently is fifth in this year's championship points standings with two wins and 11 top-10s.
