Kyle Busch loves Skittles.
He better. They're not only plastered all over his candy-sponsored racecar, but he now has the world's largest Skittles-covered birthday cake.
Busch's 31st birthday is Monday, but he was presented with the giant cake Sunday morning prior to the Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. The defending Sprint Cup champion will need a lot of teammates and friends to help him consume this monstrocity.
Busch has two wins this season and is fourth in the Sprint Cup standings. He usually drives an M&Ms-sponsored Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing but will be racing his Skittles machine for sponsor Mars Inc. at Talladega. He will start 17th in the 40-car field.
Busch rallied from a broken leg that caused him to miss 11 races last year to win the Cup championship for Gibbs and his sponsors.
Apparently, Kyle Busch- and candy-themed birthday cakes are all the rage.
