NASCAR: Kyle Busch Has Wild Night in the Bahamas on Off Week Vacation

by Joe Rutland

It appears that NASCAR veteran race car driver Kyle Busch is having quite a good time during an off-week vacation trip to the Bahamas.

Why would NASCAR have a break in its action right now? Because NBC, which shows NASCAR races, is going to be covering the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Since motorsports would not be getting network coverage from NBC, they are taking time out from their season.

Apparently, Busch, who drives the No. 18 M&M’s Camry, thought it would be a good time to get away from everything and take in the sunshine of the Bahama Islands. Maybe even have a little bit of the bubbly, too.

NASCAR Veteran’s Activities In the Bahamas Made Rounds On Social Media

There are some tweets out there showing Busch in, um, action while taking a break.

For instance, take this tweet from Twitter user jules.

Then there’s this Instagram post from the NASCAR veteran showing him sharing shots with friends.

Another tweet, this time from Luke’s Guy Walker, reportedly shows Kyle Busch and his wife driving golf carts. It appears police may have been hot on Busch’s tail.

After all the fun took place, Busch decided to share an “about last night” video through his own Twitter account.

So, Kyle Busch had a wild night down in the Bahamas. He is known to get a little rowdy at times, though, so maybe he was just living up to his nickname.

Kyle Busch Not Pleased With Short Start At New Hampshire Race

Before the NASCAR crews took time off, they had one race at New Hampshire last Sunday.

Kyle Busch held the early lead but was involved in a multi-car smashup on the sixth lap of the NASCAR Cup Series race.

Busch said after the race was called off that it should “never should have gone green.”

“We started the race under a mist,” Busch said. “It never should have gone green to begin with, but then it kept getting worse and worse lap over lap. The lap before I went into [Turn] 1, and it shoved the nose really bad and I was able to keep it under control.”

Busch still had some things on his mind, but the NASCAR driver went silent.

“It wasn’t bad enough,” Busch said. “The next time I went down there, help, I lifted at the flag stand — maybe a little past the flag stand — and just backed it in. … There’s no sense in saying what I want to say, it doesn’t do you any good.”

One might say, in this situation, that Kyle Busch took the “Thumper” route. Meaning, as the Disney character said, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.”
