Serving more than two billion people across 160 countries, Kris Kringle just may be the hardest-working guy on the planet. Not only is he responsible for spreading cheer to all the good boys and girls around the globe who participate in the holiday, but consider that toy production line and those reindeer games.

With the weight of the world on his shoulders, a nice old-fashioned thank-you note like the one Kyle Busch’s son Brexton left for Santa Claus was likely much appreciated by the big fella in the red suit.

The eldest child of the two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and his wife Samantha, Brexton put a little extra sparkle in Santa’s eyes this year with an adorable message that he wrote on a Christmas cookie platter.

As seen in a photo in Samantha’s since-expired Instagram story that was captured by Sportskeeda, Brexton’s tender, hand-written thank-you note is sure to warm the hearts of even the Scroogiest of Grinches.

What did Kyle Busch’s son Brexton write in his message to Santa Claus?

“Merry Christmas Santa,” Brexton, 8, wrote on a dish decked with the words "Santa's Cookie Message Plate." The child added, "Thank you for the presents this year. I hope you have a Merry Christmas.”

Considering Brexton is swiftly following in his speedy father’s champion-caliber racing footsteps, even jetting off to Tulsa, Oklahoma the day after Christmas for multiple races, according to an Instagram post from his mom, it’s only fitting that Santa Claus left him something that’s fast enough to keep up with his racing ambitions.

What gifts did Santa bring Brexton and Lennix Busch for Christmas?

Smiling in a photo in one of Samantha’s Instagram posts, Brexton sat atop a green dirt bike while his younger sister Lennix piloted a little pink Barbie car. Samantha corroborated that Brexton’s shiny new set of wheels is a Honda CRF110F. Built with a “robust” 109cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine and steel chassis, according to a description of the model, Brexton’s ride features an electric starter, semi-automatic four-speed transmission and the “game-changing” smooth-starting capabilities only found in fuel injection motors. Translation? There’s plenty of horse power to shred whatever dirt-devil adventures Brexton's desires.  

Samantha and Kyle Busch supported their community over the holidays

While the presents for their kids are nice, Busch and his wife also have a long history of giving back to those in need in their community — and this year was no different. Having gone through fertility issues on their journey to parenthood, the couple started The Samantha and Kyle Busch Bundle of Joy Fund, a philanthropic endeavor that helps couples overcome the financial obstacles associated with IVF. This holiday season, the Busch matriarch presented multiple couples the financial means to make their dreams of having a child come true.

After ending his 15-year tenure with Joe Gibbs Racing, Kyle captured three Cup Series victories under the Richard Childress Racing banner this year — his most wins since the 2019 season, when he took home the checkered flag five times. If he can build on that momentum in 2024, Rowdy just may etch his name onto Santa’s Nice List, giving the winner of 63 Cup Series events the opportunity to compete for the best present an elite NASCAR wheelman could ever want: a shot at a historic third Cup Series championship.
