Halloween is just around the corner, and everyone is getting ready for the spooky holiday. Among them is Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch, ahead of the Cup race at Martinsville. Normally, Busch helps ring in the Halloween season with a special livery, courtesy of his sponsor, M&Ms. However, on this occasion, he is opting to choose a different route to celebrate.

Instead of a new livery on his car, Busch is opting to run a special helmet. This helmet leans heavily into the spooky theme with a Count Dracula vibe. As per reports, a lucky winner will receive the one-of-a-kind Halloween helmet. All that fans need to do is buy tickets for $18 and all proceeds will go to The Bundle of Joy Fund.

The JGR driver knows that for this race, there will be no holds barred at all. With Kyle Larson sitting pretty after booking his berth in the Championship 4, the others are scrambling. Busch is among the seven remaining drivers, still in the championship running. Since Larson has been on a winning streak, the others are desperate to try and stop him.

The Martinsville Speedway is a track where Busch has performed well in the past. In fact, he won the race in 2017 and also had a win at the 2016 Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500. Now, he will be hoping to repeat those performances at the race track. However, he will also be aware that his six other rivals will not make it easy for him.

Also considering that Kyle Larson is in excellent form in the last few races, he will be gunning for a win. The big question is, can Kyle Busch deliver a Halloween special this weekend at Martinsville? If he wins, he guarantees himself a shot at the 2021 Cup Series title.
