Kyle Busch is also known as NASCAR’s ‘Candy man’ due to his partnership with candy brands as sponsors for his no. 18 car. Busch and Joe Gibbs Racing usually bring some unique and attractive paint schemes with the M&Ms brand and that has also been the case this year.

This weekend, at Kansas Speedway, Busch will bring a multi-colored paint M&Ms scheme to the race track. The M&M’S Mix Toyota Camry is majorly a combination of red, brown, and yellow this week, with some other colors used as well.

Another different paint scheme for Kyle Busch in 2021

Busch’s paint schemes always attract a lot of attention. That is not just because of the uniqueness of those schemes, but also Busch’s superstar status in the sport.

This past weekend at Talladega, Busch ran a striking green no. 18 livery with primary sponsor Interstate Batteries all over his car.

He will hope that the new scheme also brings about a big change in fortune this season. Given the high standards he has set as a NASCAR driver, Busch has gotten off to another slow start in 2021.


The Joe Gibbs Racing driver has finished inside the top-10 in half of the 10 races so far. However, he has been able to return just two top-5 finishes. Those two top-5s came at Atlanta and Las Vegas, which is his home track.

Busch has just one win since the start of the 2020 season and he will aim to get the monkey off his back pretty soon. He has three top 5s in his last five Cup Series races at Kansas, but just one win in his Cup career there which came in 2016.

At Talladega, Busch made his way to the front late in the race. However, he could not navigate his Toyota through the Ford cars, which were high in number at the front of the field.

We had a good @interstatebatteries Camry yesterday. We got up front towards the end, but the Fords just had too many numbers, and we were mired in 13th, so took a chance on pitting and it didn’t work out. We’ll regroup and look forward to Kansas,” Busch expressed on social media after the race.

Busch is currently in 11th place in the NASCAR Cup Series standings.
