Kurt Busch Once Surprised Kyle With a Mariachi Band, and It Ended Up Being a Double Celebration

Kyle Busch nabbing the Buschy McBusch Race 400 victory at Kansas Speedway back in May 2021 certainly called for celebration. Not only did it mark his first win of the 2021 season, but it also happened to fall on the same day as his 36th birthday. He had a great celebration on Victory Lane, but that was only just the beginning.

Luckily for Kyle, his brother Kurt Busch likes to have a good time no matter what the circumstances. They were both due for a flight back home, and since Kurt arrived at the airport earlier than Kyle, he figured that would be the perfect time and place to set up a little impromptu party. Cinco de Mayo was right around the corner as well, so his golden idea involved hiring a full mariachi band to play some music for when Kyle walked through the doorway. Kyle was certainly surprised as he walked into the airport, and Kurt even had a few cold beers waiting for him.

Kurt decided to post a couple clips on social media so that us fans could get a little inside peek at the festivities. We got a little bit of a before, during, and after situation, as the clips showed Kurt waiting for his brother to show up, the moment that he arrived, and the two of them enjoying the show. While the Busches waited for their flight, they got a chance to enjoy the music, and the band even played the oh-so-fitting "Una Mas Cervesa." As for airport experiences, it doesn't get much better than this. Kyle's wife Samantha and his son Brexton even joined in on the action via FaceTime. There's no doubt that Kyle must have been on cloud nine for the next few days.

A race victory, a birthday, and a Cinco de Mayo celebration. That sounds like one hell of a weekend, but it was well-deserved. It's good to see the Busch brothers having a little fun, even if it was just for a few moments at the airport. This may be a bit hard to top, but I can only imagine things got even better once Kyle finally made it back to his family in North Carolina.
