The first family of Las Vegas motorsports will add to the family legacy on Saturday, March 5 when Brexton Busch makes his West Coast Bandolero debut in the Bash at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Busch, the 7-year old son of two-time NASCAR champion Kyle Busch, has already made an impression in the racing world racking up wins at tracks around the country. He is coming off an impressive 2022 season which saw him win 32 races at 13 different tracks across 11 states in two separate styles of racecars.
He also was able to collect his second track championship in as many years, claiming the title in the Beginner Box Stock division at Mountain Creek (N.C.) Speedway.
As part of his progression into various styles of racecars at tracks all over the country, on March 5 he will make his first Bandolero start on the track his father racked up more than 100 wins across several divisions.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun to race at the same track that my Dad, Grandpa Tom and Uncle Kurt have a lot of wins at,” Busch said. ‘”I haven’t raced my Bandolero much, but hopefully I can get the win!”
The Bullring opened in 1985 with Brexton’s grandfather, Tom Busch, winning the first ever race. Brexton’s uncle, former NASCAR champion Kurt Busch, picked up more than 30 wins during the 1990s at the Bullring.
The March 5 event will also include a Legends car feature and racing will start approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Alsco Uniforms 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the LVMS superspeedway.
Admission to the grandstands is free and a limited number of shuttles will be available from the superspeedway to the Bullring.
