Kyle Busch, who "retired" from NASCAR Xfinity Series competition after a five-win season in 2021, officially un-retired from the series on Friday.

Busch, who has the most career wins (102) in series history, will pilot the No. 10 Kaulig Racing All-Star entry for five races during the 2023 season.

The five-race stint for Busch behind the wheel of the Kaulig Racing entry will begin at his home track -- Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 4th.

Busch will also run at Phoenix Raceway on March 11th, Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 27th, Watkins Glen International on August 19th and Darlington Raceway on September 2nd.

The announcement of Busch's un-retirement initially came in the form of a video that Busch shared on Twitter, which featured a stack of televisions showcasing past legends of sports, such as Tom Brady and Michael Jordan, retiring and un-retiring. At the end of the video, Busch stated, "I'm back."

Here is the video from Busch:

Following Busch's video, Kaulig Racing took to Twitter to stake their claim to the most dominant driver in the history of the NASCAR Xfinity Series. In the tweet, Kaulig Racing stated, "We're proud to announce @KyleBusch, the all-time-record holder for NXS wins, will pilot our No. 10 Chevrolet for five races in 2023!"

Here is the Tweet from Kaulig Racing:

The 37-year-old Busch is a two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion. Back in September, the Las Vegas native announced a move from Joe Gibbs Racing to Richard Childress Racing for the 2023 season. Busch's affiliation with RCR and Chevrolet is what paved the way for the partnership with Kaulig Racing.

“I’m looking forward to having some fun in the Xfinity Series again,” said Busch. “What Matt Kaulig and Chris Rice have built in just a few short years at Kaulig Racing is impressive, and with the team’s alliance with Richard Childress Racing (RCR), this made for an easy decision to be back competing in a series that I’ve had success in over the years.”

Now, the team that loves to hunt for trophies will have ample chance to do just that with Busch behind the wheel of its cars for five events in 2023.

“Kyle Busch is a true competitor and will forever be known as one of the best – and winningest – NASCAR drivers of all time,” said Chris Rice, president of Kaulig Racing. “We’re excited to have a former Cup and Xfinity Series champion bring his experience and knowledge to our team. There is no doubt in our minds that Kyle will help our Xfinity Program grow and contend for wins this year.”

The team and Busch did not announce any sponsorship particulars for the partnership on Friday, but those announcements will be coming in the near future.

Busch joins the All-Star driver lineup in the No. 10 entry, which will feature Justin Haley, AJ Allmendinger, and Austin Dillon, who were already announced prior to Busch's announcement.
