Kyle Busch has had a memorable week. Only a day after he made his return to NASCAR in the Sprint All-Star race, Busch and wife Samantha welcomed son into the world. Busch made the announcement via his Twitter late Monday night, announcing that Brexton Locke Busch was born at 9:45 p.m. weighing 7lbs 10oz and 21 inches long.  He added that both mom and baby were doing great.

Busch has missed much of this season after being injured in a crash at the end of the NASCAR Xfinity race at Daytona International Speedway on February 21.  In the crash, Busch suffered a compound fracture of his lower right leg and broke his left foot. MORE>>>
