Kyle Busch might not have bagged the NASCAR Xfinity win he fought so hard to take. But his son’s reaction to his first-place finish at Texas is enough to cure him of his blues.
Kyle’s wife Samantha Busch posted a video of Brexton’s reaction to his dad finishing the race in the first position. In the video, Braxton is seen dancing and jumping around as Kyle crossed the line ahead of everyone on the TV screen.
Samantha asks, “Who won?” to which Braxton replies, “My dad won!” and breaks into a hilarious dance as Samantha laughs in the background.
Just like his dad, Braxton is a racing fan. And earlier this year Kyle revealed in a tweet that Brexton has already started his racing preparation on the dirt tracks.
In fact, Brexton took the victory lap in his dad’s car after his NASCAR Cup Series championship win last year.
After Kyle had already celebrated his 10th NASCAR Xfinity Series win at Texas, he was stripped of his accomplishment. The post-race inspection revealed that Kyle’s Number 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota failed to match the legal ‘car height’ limits.
Kyle is already one of the top NASCAR Xfinity race winners and the Texas win would have taken his total to 98 career victories in the series.
Following Busch’s disqualification, Austin Cindric, who came in at second, was declared the victor. And series leader Chase Briscoe was promoted to second place.
However, Busch didn’t let this disqualification bother his performance. And went on to win the NASCAR Truck race just a few hours after the incident.
The Kyle Busch racing team had a dominating night at the Texas Motor Speedway. As his teammate, Christian Ecke finished at P2 ahead of last year’s Truck Series champion Matt Crafton.
