When it comes to racing, kids tend to start young, and there may not be a better example than NASCAR driver Kyle Busch.
The two-time NASCAR Cup series champion got his start by racing go-karts at age 6, and now the family tradition continues as Busch’s 5-year old son, Brexton, begins his career behind the wheel of his No. 18 Beginner Box Stock Car.
In an effort to support the young driver and extend its relationship with NASCAR and the racing community, Far Out Toys is partnering with Kyle Busch Motorsports to sponsor Brexton throughout the 2020 and 2021 racing seasons. Under the watchful eye of parents Kyle and Samantha Busch, Brexton will hit the dirt track at Millbridge Speedway and Mountain Creek Speedway in North Carolina. Practice laps are already underway.
“We’re thrilled to support Brexton Busch in his early driving career,” says Keith Meggs, CEO of Far Out Toys, maker of NASCAR Adventure Force Crash Racers and NASCAR Crash Circuit track sets. “At Far Out Toys, we believe in the power of dreams of young boys and girls. Brexton, with his desires to be a race car driver, embodies the very spirit of the American dream and the belief that we can all achieve whatever we set our hearts and minds to!”
As part of the new deal, Brexton will sport the Far Out Toys and Crash Circuit logos on his car and on his official race suit and helmet.
“Brexton and the entire Busch family are incredibly excited to work with Far Out Toys to promote racing and cool toys,” Kyle Busch says. “Far Out Toys is a leader in the toy industry and their relationship with NASCAR makes this a special partnership for us.”
Just in time for fall, Far Out Toys is releasing two NASCAR Crash Racers sets: the NASCAR Crash Circuit Road Course and Winners Circle and NASCAR Crash Circuit Short Track Speedway. Alongside NASCAR driver Natalie Decker, Far Out Toys showed off some of its new offerings at the Toy Insider‘s Sweet Suite @ Home last month.
