The driver designed the new font for the No. 8 car

Kyle Busch spent the last 15 seasons behind the wheel of the No. 18 car. For 2023, he’s left Joe Gibbs Racing for Richard Childress Racing and will now drive the No. 8 car.

The new number was personally designed by Busch. The change came with input from Richard Childress and RCR.

“The revised number honors the past while embracing the future and the new era that Busch’s presence brings to the 54-year-old organization, essentially merging one of the NASCAR industry’s most storied teams with one of the sports’ most successful modern era drivers,” per the team release.

The team also confirmed crew chief Randall Burnett and spotter Derek Kneeland will remain with the No. 8. Kneeland previously worked with Reddick in 2022.
