Last week was a big one for Kyle Busch, both professionally and personally. On the professional front, he moved one step closer towards his transition from Joe Gibbs Racing to Richard Childress Racing, with RCR unveiling the sponsors and paint schemes on Busch's No. 8 Chevrolet, which he'll be helming during the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season. But, the fun didn't stop there, as Kyle and his wife Samantha later headed to Las Vegas, Kyle's hometown, that Saturday to host the annual gala for their Bundle of Joy Fund.
Of course, when in Vegas, you've got to get in a little bit of gambling, and Busch made sure to hit the craps tables with a couple of his buddies during the night's festivities. It seems like the two-time Cup Series champ has a new lucky number, considering he appeared to win big by rolling an eight at one point in the night. Obviously, the number 18 will always be near and dear to Kyle's heart, as he won 56 races and two titles in the No. 18 Toyota for JGR. But, Busch is clearly ready to usher in the next chapter of his career. And, besides, 18 doesn't mean diddly in craps.

Raising money and awareness for fertility treatments has been huge part of Kyle and Samantha Busch's lives for nearly a decade. The NASCAR couple, who have been married since 2010, started the Bundle of Joy Fund in 2015 through the Kyle Busch Foundation. According to the official website, the fund "is dedicated to advocating for infertility education and awareness and removing financial barriers by granting monetary awards to couples who require fertility treatments to have their own bundle of joy."
The mission of fund is especially significant to the Busches, as Samantha has been outspoken about her own fertility struggles over the years and has been a huge proponent of in vitro fertilization. Kyle and Samantha have two children together, seven-year-old Brexton and seven-month-old Lennix, who were both born via IVF.
