Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Kyle Busch has been an absolute workhorse this season. On top of having a three-year-old son to take care of (although we’re sure Kyle’s wife Samantha has been doing quite a bit of work on that front as well), Rowdy has had himself quite the dominant regular season, racking up six wins heading into the upcoming Cup Series Playoffs.
This past week alone, Busch raced at the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis, flew back home to Charlotte, and then made the trek to Las Vegas for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs Media Day. Needless to say, he probably hasn’t been getting all that much sleep lately.
That’s why, right in the middle of Kevin Harvick’s media day read on Thursday, Busch took advantage of his down time by having himself a little nap. Unfortunately for him (who are we kidding, Rowdy has no shame), but fortunately for us, someone snapped a few photos of Busch catching some Z’s and uploaded them to Twitter.
It may seem like a pretty wild time and place to snag some shut eye, but those closest to Kyle Busch know he can sleep just about anywhere. Busch’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin shared an additional pic of Rowdy sleeping under a curtain during media day, while Samantha Busch confirmed her husband’s fondness for naps.
As it turns out, Busch’s viral nap session got the attention of NASCAR parody account nascarcasm, who posted more photo proof that #KyleBuschCanNapAnywhere. Of course, a few of these pics are photoshopped, but we wouldn’t put it past Rowdy to nap under the hood of a stock car if presented with the opportunity.
