Sprint Cup Series driver Kyle Busch made his first appearance at the track Thursday since he and his wife, Samantha, welcomed their first child earlier this week. Brexton Busch weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces and is 21 inches long.
Kyle was asked if there was a "new" Kyle Busch now that his son had arrived.
“I don’t know that I’m different, but it’s a whole new
world right now for sure. It’s an entirely different feeling. You wonder where
the time goes already. I was trying to get ready this morning and Samantha was
trying to get ready – she had to take him for an appointment and some other
stuff and I’m trying to help out and all of the sudden it’s time for me to leave
to come out here to the race track and I’m like, ‘Holy smokes, I have to get
ready, I have to hurry up.’ That was different," he said.
"It's way different than what it
was before he was born. Obviously, Samantha was taking care of him. She had him
in her so just taking care of him that way and carrying him around. I didn’t
have to worry about anything. I didn’t have to feed him, I didn’t have to change
him or nothing like that, but it’s a whole different world now that he’s here
with having to take care of him so we both have to spread our time. Obviously,
when his favorite thing to do is make stinky diapers, then you’ve certainly got
your work cut out for you.”
