This week, Kyle Busch has understandably been in a celebratory mood after unexpectedly collecting his 60th career Cup Series win and first of the 2022 season on Easter Sunday on the Bristol dirt. He revealed as much on social media with a post that showed off his dance moves and, more impressively, his wife’s athletic skills.   

Kyle Busch wins at Bristol

You couldn’t have scripted Kyle Busch winning on the Bristol dirt any better than it happened. A little over a month after bashing Alex Bowman for backing into the win at Las Vegas, where Busch had dominated late and appeared destined for Victory Lane but for a late caution, and just a few days after suggesting that racing on the dirt takes the sport backward, he backed into a win on the dirt. 

After the race, the two-time Cup Series champion was unsurprisingly greeted by a chorus of boos from many fans in response to his previous remarks and his polarizing personality. 

“Yeah, we got one. Doesn’t matter how you get them. It’s all about getting them,” Busch told Fox’s Jamie Little with boos audible in the background. “Just can’t say enough. Man, I feel like I’m Dale Earnhardt Sr. right now. This is awesome. I didn’t even do anything.” 

Kyle Busch shares video that reveals wife’s impressive arm 

Busch’s win at Bristol also extended his streak to at least one win in 18 consecutive seasons, tying him with Richard Petty. This week, the victory and all the accompanying accolades, including a playoff berth, had the 36-year-old driver in a celebratory mood and he shared one of the moments with his fans on social media. 

In a tweet with a video, he asked fans what they thought about the form of his wife, Samantha, who threw a football to him running a route on what appeared to be the training facility at Joe Gibbs Racing that included an artificial grass surface. 

In heels, his wife stepped into the throw and delivered a tight spiral on a line that he caught in full stride approximately 30 yards down the field. Once he reached the mythical end zone, the driver broke out into a celebratory dance before punting the ball back down the field.   

Busch and wife team up to help others struggling with infertility

While Busch’s wife has a big arm, she and her husband also have big hearts. The pair have been open about their struggles in dealing with infertility. She wrote a book, Fighting Infertility, which came out last year that detailed her own personal journey. 

In addition to sharing their own experiences, the couple established the Bundle of Joy Fund in 2015, which according to the website, provides monetary grants for in-need couples struggling with infertility and assists with the costs associated with IVF treatment. To date, the fund has awarded 84 grants totaling more than $1 million with more than 50 babies born.

The couple announced in November they were expecting a second child with the help of a surrogate and the baby is due in late May.

Sounds like another opportunity for both Busches and their son to break out a celebratory dance. Throwing a football around is optional.
