During the conference, he told the media, “But to me, this situation right now is very important to me as well as Kyle Busch Motorsports, because wherever this next place is, whether it’s Joe Gibbs Racing or whoever, I would like it not to have to go through this again, right?”

“I’ve got six, seven, maybe eight more years. If I play all this out perfectly, Brexton and I, we share a truck when he turns 16 years old. When he’s 16 and 17. It’s his when he’s 18 and I’m done, I’m out.”

He then adds, “You know what I mean like that’s the perfect play. So if I can align all of that, you know the runway does exist for a Busch. Obviously, he’s pretty talented, he wins a lot, he wins more than I do, I hear about it every day.”

“So the runway for him, if you wanna look at it that way here’s 30 years plus.”

“So he can carry out this legacy a hell lot longer than I will.”

This definitely sounds like a great plan to carry forward the Busch legacy down another generation, provided Brexton decides to carry on the same path as his father going forward.
