After nearly two decades at the top level of NASCAR, Kyle Busch has earned the right to retire on his own terms, as he wishes. And what does he want? Something straight out of NBA superstar LeBron James’ retirement plans – wanting to run with his son. Recently, Richard Childress Racing driver opened up about the prospect of extending his career so he can race with his 8-year-old son, Brexton. Coincidentally, Busch’s plans may earn him that missing piece in his trophy cabinet.
Earlier this year, LeBron James announced his desire to play with his son, Bronny James, in the NBA. This scenario is highly likely, given that most analysts are predicting that 18-year-old Bronny could enter the draft by next year or by the 2025 season, and with the way James, 38, currently playing, it seems very likely that he could play another 3-4. league seasons. The Lakers superstar, however, clarified that the dream was for the two to play on the floor at the same time, whether on different teams.

Kyle Busch wants to date LeBron James style
Ahead of the race at Pocono this weekend, Busch gave a hint as to how he plans to retire, saying: “I would say in a perfect world – I kind of imagined that a bit – in a perfect world I would retire from Cup racing when Brexton is 15,” and then “Run a full Truck Series season to see if I can win a Truck Series championship.”
Winning the Truck Series would make Busch the only person in NASCAR history to win a championship at all three levels – Cup, Xfinity and Truck. It’s a prospect the former JGR diver is indeed relishing, given he has the most race wins on all three levels combined.
Busch continued, “So I would do that and then when Brexton turns 16 he and I can share this truck where he can run the shorter track races and I can run the bigger track races.”
How Kyle Busch Exactly Wants To Fulfill His ‘Dream’
The two-time Cup champion added, “So for two years, because you have to be 18 to race the big tracks, so for two years we would split it. And then when he’s 18 he takes it over and then when he runs it and takes it over and hopefully wins a championship and then he moves on (probably to Xfinity and possibly the Cup) and then I went out, as I am made.”
This particular timeline of events means that Busch will be around 48 to 50 by the time he retires from NASCAR, an achievement in its own right, considering all of the work Rowdy has done in all three series for over 19 years. years.
