Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer Feel the Nerves of Being ‘Racing Dads’ More Than in NASCAR Races

February 17, 2021 5:30 pm

As the elder statesman in NASCAR, Kyle Busch already has his son stepping onto the racing scene. Recently, he and newly-retired driver, Clint Bowyer, bonded over their children going racing. Their sons, Cash Bowyer and Brexton Busch, race in the Beginner Box Stock Car series, and the two have notched up a few wins.

“It was pretty cool when Brexton won and we were all there. Sharing one of his wins. Do you get nervous watching your kid?”. To that, Bowyer confessed that that feeling is worse than any last lap in any Cup race,” said Busch.

Without a doubt, both Cash and Brexton are following in their fathers’ footsteps. Now that Clint has retired, he will likely have more time to spend training his son. Admittedly, Kyle Busch has a packed schedule staring him in the face. However, he will try and be there for young Brexton.

Kyle Busch and Clint Bowyer are not the only racer dads

Like a number of older NASCAR driver, Busch and Bowyer join the racer dad club. Many of its members include Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, and many more. Of course, there is no guarantee that the juniors will eventually reach the NASCAR Cup Series. Luckily, they have their whole lives ahead of them to decide on their walk of life.

For the moment, Clint Bowyer is perfectly content with his commentary gig. Meanwhile, Kyle Busch is also happy to continue racing and to prove that he still has the racing bug. At 36-years old, Busch still feels like he can deliver a decent performance behind the wheel.

However, he enters the 2021 season with a massive mission in mind. To be precise, he is seeking redemption after putting in a weak title defense in 2019. Hopefully, he can somehow pull it off and mount a stronger challenge in 2021.
