How many times have you witnessed Kyle Busch do something and thought to yourself that he could use some anger management? Well, the driver of the No. 18 machine just got a huge dose of anger management, Charlie Sheen-style!

According to a recent article on, Busch will appear on an upcoming episode of the hit FX TV show Anger Management. The article goes on to state that Busch is "to play himself in one episode of the FX comedy. He'll be seeking counseling...we presume for road rage...from Charlie's character."

Busch confirmed the news himself with the following tweet.

Was really fun w lots of cool people. #Winning RT @samanthabusch: On set @angermgmtfx! @kylebusch @charliesheen

Busch making a TV show appearance follows in the footsteps of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart. That trio of drivers recently had cameos on the hit Fox show The Cleveland Show.

Busch doing Anger Management is great for himself and the sport. NASCAR has some very colorful personalities, and it's cool to see them step off of the track and do stuff like this. When drivers put themselves out there, it allows fans to see them in a different light. The exposure of the hit TV show also allows NASCAR to reach people they normally might not.

For Busch, this is personally good for him also. It's no secret that he has had many issues on and off the track, especially when it comes to his temper. Doing a show like this and poking fun at himself could possibly endear some fans toward him.

Hopefully NASCAR and its drivers continue this trend of cameos and appearances. Things like this are a win-win for the drivers and the fans.

Or in Sheen's world, this would just be another example of winning.
