What is Kyle Busch's net worth? Inside NASCAR driver's mansion as he celebrates 36th birthday with Kansas win
There's no better birthday gift to yourself than a sweet win, and that's exactly what Kyle Busch did. The racer celebrated his 36th birthday with a win at the Buschy McBusch Race in Kansas. The win is Busche's first of 2021, his second series win of the season and 61st of his career.
The popular Las Vegas native is now being widely celebrated on social media with many of his opponents joining in to congratulate Busche. Unfortunately, the day wasn't all roses for Busche. After a narrow victory that required some great driving, Busche was also booed by viewer/viewers. It's unclear what prompted the booing, but clearly, someone wasn't too pleased with his win. As Busch is being celebrated, we thought it would be a good time to look into him and answer the crucial question, what is his net worth? Here's everything we know about Busch, his assets and his value.

What is Kyle Busch's net worth?
As with all other celebrities, we don't know the true value of Busch's net worth but Celebrity Net Worth has estimated it to be around $80M. Between June 2018 and 2019, he was one of the highest-paid racers in the sport, with around $14M coming from wins and his salary. In 2019, Forbes estimated Busch's earnings to be at around $17.8M, including from his off-track activities such as endorsements and investments.
What does one do with $80M? Well, if you are Busch then you invest in a 13,000-square-foot building in Charlotte, North Carolina. That massive property was sold for $7.5M in 2012 and it houses Busch's many trophies. We got a brief look into the home when Kyle's wife Samantha provided fans with a tour of her closet in September 2020. Busch also owns a rare Lexus LFA, a sports car whose asking price often goes above $1M. It's unlikely that's all he owns, we are sure his garage is filled with other sweet rides.
'What a sore Loser'
After the stunning win at Kansas, Busch was booed by a fan during an interview. You can hear the booing in this clip shared by Fox journalist Kamie Little, who tweeted, "You just gotta keep digging and persevering."

One fan retweeted that video and said, "Whoever is booing @KyleBusch during this interview deserves a good (punch) in the face."

Another user shared an image of a fan making a rude gesture and tweeted, "I didn’t mean to catch this pic - but I’m cracking up!!!! If you don’t realize @KyleBusch feeds off this stuff (as he should) I just don’t know what to say to ya." It's unclear if this was the same fan who booed Busch during his interview. One person tweeted, "That one guy who booed through kyle busch's entire interview What a sore Loser. He won get over it I used to boo him a lot too but I'm starting to realize he's actually a really damn good drive." Another said, "Anyone who booed kyle busch during that interview is a horrible person."

The booing did not overshadow Busch's win or his birthday. Many people seemed to ignore it in favor of celebrating the driver, including brother Kurt, who had a hilarious reception waiting for Kyle.
