Kyle Busch isn’t a “young gun” anymore. It was evident on NASCAR Playoff media day in Las Vegas Thursday as the 2015 champ was nursing a serious hangover. A very tired Kyle Busch was photographed multiple times throughout the day sleeping in various locations like he was Tom Hanks in The Terminal.
According to SiriusXM NASCAR, Kyle Busch went out with Ryan Blaney, Erik Jones, Chase Elliott, Landon Cassill, and others Wednesday night in Las Vegas. At 33 Kyle found out he can’t hang with the kids anymore. Reportedly out until almost 4 AM did Kyle in. Running on maybe two hours of sleep he was looking for anywhere to catch a quick nap.
Under a table, under a curtain, next to Kevin Harvick, against a wall, with a pillow, Kyle Busch was trying to get as many little naps as possible. And unfortunately for him, everyone noticed.

The most impressive thing is the fact that Kyle can sleep anywhere. I can’t sleep in a damn California King with 7 pillows, a fan on and noise in the background. This dude is sleeping on the floor at the South Point Casino. A month ago I was at the South Point, it’s not a quiet place.
Doesn’t matter to Kyle, give him a tablecloth or a curtain and this son of a bitch can catch some shut-eye. Bet he can sleep on planes too, what a guy.
Kyle’s wife also got in on the fun as well. Saying he passed out standing up in the elevator.

Kyle Busch is a dad, leave the partying dad days to Dustin Johnson and the kids. For the first time ever we’ve found something that Kyle isn’t good at it’s staying up until 4 AM. If any of these playoff drivers were smart they’d try to keep him up late on Saturday night before playoff races. If you can’t beat him literally tire him out.
