Kyle Busch is currently competing in the NASCAR Cup Series race at the Dover International Speedway. However, in the build-up to the race, he made sure to have some bonding time with his son Brexton. At an NHRA event, Busch and his son sat in some of the cars. Admittedly, Brexton faced a few issues due to his small stature, but he had a lot of fun.

Of course, this was an NHRA event, so it was quite loud on the drag strip. Despite this, Kyle and Brexton enjoyed their experience on the strip. Truthfully speaking, the boy is still a little young, but he is already making a foray into the racing scene. In fact, the child has even won a handful of races.

His father, Kyle Busch, has been incredibly supportive of his son’s career. At the same time, he is also focusing on his own NASCAR Cup Series career.

Last year, he endured one of the most difficult seasons in the NASCAR Cup Series. In fact, he almost went without a win during the season for the first time ever. Luckily, he redeemed himself in Texas and kept up his streak of at least one win in every season.

Admittedly, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver is a little further away from the title fight that he would have liked. However, he is still in with a shout of making the playoffs. As long as he continues to score consistent results in the points, he should be just fine.

For now, the 35-year-old is focused on performing his best for his team. He knows that he needs to really pull up his socks in order to stay alive in the competition. For that, he has to try and gun for victory or at least consistent Top 10 results.
