CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Baby on board.

Kyle Busch and his wife have welcomed their first child, a boy born days after Busch returned to racing.

Brexton Locke Busch was born Monday night. The NASCAR star announced his arrival on social media with a photo of wife Samantha holding Brexton as Busch kisses her forehead.

The baby was due Friday but Busch said his wife would be induced Monday. The birth date of 5-18 marks both car numbers Busch has driven in the Sprint Cup Series — No. 5 at Hendrick Motorsports and No. 18 for Joe Gibbs Racing.

Busch missed 11 races because of injuries from a Feb. 21 race at Daytona. He returned to competition last weekend in the All-Star Race and will run the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday.
