Kyle Busch’s son is set to extend the Bush Family Legacy at Las Vegas
Kyle Busch holds the record for the greatest number of Top 5s in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Kyle Busch and Brexton Busch
Kyle Busch’s 7-year-old son Brexton Busch will make his West Coast Bandolero debut hours after the Xfinity Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Bash at the Bullring will be part of the young Busch’s journey to the top of the NASCAR ladder and finally racing for KBM alongside Kyle Busch, as the two times Cup champion’s plan for his son.
The Bullring is synonymous to the legacy of the Busch family’s legacy. Brexton’s grandfather Tom Busch was the first-ever win at the Bullring. He won the inaugural event in 1985. Kyle Busch has won hundreds of races among many divisions in the track, while Kurt Busch won more than 30 races in the 90s before moving on to NASCAR.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun to race at the same track that my Dad, Grandpa Tom, and Uncle Kurt have a lot of wins at. I haven’t raced my Bandolero much, but hopefully, I can get the win!” Brexton Busch said about racing at the historic track.
Brexton has been traveling around the USA, learning from the best to be the best. He has won races in 11 different states in two different racing disciplines. He won 32 races on 13 different tracks last season and his second track championship, the Beginner Box Stock division.
Kurt Busch and Kyle Busch are in for a significant year in 2023
For the Busch family, the 2023 season marks radical changes in terms of racing. Kyle Busch left Joe Gibbs Racing after serving 15 years for the team and winning two championships. He joined the Richard Childress Racing No:8 team after JGR failed to find a suitable sponsor for him after M&M’s departure.
On the other hand, Kurt Busch will drive a part-time schedule in 2023 for 23XI Racing. Busch was sidelined last season after suffering concussion-like symptoms following his crash during the Pocono qualifying session and is yet to get medical clearance to race. He is also responsible for working as a mentor for Bubba Wallace and his new teammate Tyler Reddick.
With 3 Cup titles and 1 Xfinity series title, the Busch brothers are one of NASCAR’s most successful sibling pairs. They have won 94 Cup races, 107 Xfinity series races, and 66 Truck series races. Most of these wins are by Kyle Busch, who has driven the most races in the lower-tier series and had the best equipment throughout his career.
