Kyle Thomas B, a native of Nevada, was “credited with full responsibility in the conduct of the offense of carrying a firearm without a license and possession of cartridges for the exclusive use of the armed forces,” according to the Mexico Prosecutor General’s office.

After spent the most of his Cup Series career with Joe Gibbs Racing, Busch is entering his first season at Richard Childress Racing. After longstanding sponsor M&M Mars chose to leave NASCAR after the 2022 season, Busch, who has 223 victories overall across NASCAR’s top three series, was unable to reach an agreement to extend his career at JGR.

Busch scored 56 of his 60 career Cup Series victories with JGR, where he also won both of his Cup Series championships. Busch and Kevin Harvick are the only two active full-time Cup Series drivers with more than one championship, and they each have 60 Cup wins between them.
