While collaborating with Far Out Toys, the Busch clan decided to help a family who was impacted by the floods.

The flood rendered a lot of people homeless and reportedly claimed a few lives. The situation escalated to a point where floodwaters reached the rooftops.

Additionally, several roads were waterlogged and many areas were devoid of electrical power. As it turns out, this flood was one of the after-effects of Hurricane Matthew.

This is why Kyle Busch, Brexton Busch, and the rest of the family are doing their best to provide relief. Truthfully speaking, he is not the only party who is aiding in relief efforts. There are multiple parties involved in rescue and rehabilitation efforts.

What else is Kyle Busch up to in the NASCAR off-season?

The #18 Joe Gibbs Racing driver is currently enjoying some downtime in the off-season. However, there will soon come a time when he will get back to work and prepare for the coming season.

Having been the 2019 Cup Series champion, he will be determined to wrest back the title from Chase Elliott‘s clutches.

Additionally, Busch will be eager for redemption and will want to mount a stronger challenge. This season, he finished eighth in the championship and racked up one win at the Texas Motor Speedway. With this, he kept his winning streak alive for a 16th consecutive season.

If he manages to surpass 18 consecutive seasons with a win, he will hold an all-time record. Of course, a record will not mean much to him if he does not win the Cup Series title. However, Kyle Busch will definitely try to give his rivals a run for their money.
