Samantha Busch Throws Shade at Kurt and Kyle Busch During F1 Las Vegas GP

The inaugural F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix saw the presence of Kurt and Kyle Busch, along with Kyle’s wife Samantha Busch, as well as other motorsport stars. The family was invited by the city, and as proud natives of Las Vegas, the brothers have a deep love for racing.

After the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, many drivers, including Kurt and Kyle Busch, are enjoying the offseason in various ways. A number of them attended the F1 event in Las Vegas, where Samantha Busch humorously referred to her husband and brother-in-law as the “worst spectators” in a social media post.

Kurt Busch revealed that the city of Las Vegas invited him to attend the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix. Despite his initial skepticism about certain aspects of the circuit, he expressed excitement about witnessing the F1 spectacle and acknowledged his enjoyment of all forms of racing.

Expressing gratitude to their hometown, Kurt Busch thanked Las Vegas for hosting them at the event and reminisced about receiving a Grand Prix poster from his father during the 80s. Meanwhile, Kyle Busch, who had a decent debut season at Richard Childress Racing but did not make it to the Round of 12, had three wins in the 2023 season.

Aside from the Busch brothers, other NASCAR drivers attended the event, enjoying a break from their usual races.
