Who figured Kyle Busch would get behind wheels of No. 48?

BY Joe Menzer • December 29, 2016

It has obviously been a great holiday season thus far for Kyle Busch, his wife Samantha and their 1-son, Brexton.

In case you missed it, Samantha sent Kyle on a honey-do shopping trip before Christmas that ended up with the driver of the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota pushing young Brexton in a cart featuring the No. 48 logo of rival driver and seven-time NASCAR Premier Series champion Jimmie Johnson, who drives the 48 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports.

It just so happens that barely a month ago, Johnson beat out Kyle Busch and three others in the Championship 4 season finale to earn that record-tying seventh championship, ending Busch's reign as champion after he won his first title in 2015.

Even Samantha Busch got a great laugh out of the shopping-cart episode -- as did, apparently, her husband -- when she documented it on social media. Who figured the driver of the No. 18 would ever play crew member pushing the No. 48?

That was followed by a Christmas where the whole family was looking great, plus a beach visit where Brexton clearly had some doubts about the bearded guy in the red-and-white suit. Maybe he just wanted Santa to bring him some Skittles.
