The elder Busch brother made news earlier in the month when he testified during a hearing that he is convinced his ex-girlfriend is a trained assassin. It's a story ripped right from the silver screen and one that caught the attention of many sports fans.
According to The Associated Press, via ESPN.com, Kyle Busch hasn't talked to his brother about the ongoing affairs and added that he's growing weary of seeing his name linked to the story:
Haven't spoken to him, don't know nothing; trying to stay away from it all and let him handle his business. [...]
I think it's stupid. I think people need to do a little bit more background before they write names or say names if they don't know what the heck they are talking about. It's not that hard to differentiate between two people that have the same last name. I think people need to do a better job and not be so slackish.
Busch admitted that the biggest potential problem regards one of his sponsors, M&M's. While there has been no issue at this time with the company's sponsorship, Busch admitted "he wasn't sure if that would change if he is continually linked to his brother's legal issues."
Getting back on the track will likely help Busch move on. The 2015 season kicks off on Feb. 14 at the Daytona International Speedway with the Sprint Unlimited.
The 29-year-old will be looking to rebound after dropping from fourth at the end of the 2013 season to 10th in 2014.
