MADISON, ILL. — Drivers often say loved ones help lead them to victory but only occasionally does that literally happen.
Case in point, Kyle Busch in the NASCAR Cup Series race Sunday at Gateway.
Samantha Busch and son Brexton were Kip Childress’s passengers in the pace car as they led dad around for six pace laps before he set off.
Dad had something for them too. Rowdy Busch gave the pace car a little bump, then roared by them as he took the green flag.
Samantha Busch took video of the whole experience, which you can see here.
