When you get the opportunity to have Kyle Busch be a groomsman at your wedding, you must seize it with all of your might.

As part of a promotional appearance at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Wednesday, Busch was in the wedding of Crystal and Bobby Dezarov. How did this all happen? Well, Crystal wrote the Las Vegas Motor Speedway about the couple's desire to get married in October and her love of Busch.
But, we must note, it's not as much as her love for her husband.
Crystal, who is a veterinary assistant in Palm Desert, Calif., when she’s not watching Kyle Busch drive around in circles, was out wrangling a pony when the speedway called back.
They said the Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500 was in October in Martinsville, Va., and three other races were scheduled in October, and all of these races were part of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. So chances were that Kyle was going to be a little busy then.
But the speedway people were bringing him to town on Jan. 21, to help spur ticket sales for the Kobalt 400 at LVMS on March 9. If the happy couple would consider moving the wedding up, perhaps they could say something to Kyle.
The Dezarovs agreed, and the Speedway asked Busch to be in the wedding. It was a perfect fit, it's just that the engagement was not nearly as long as Crystal and Bobby were originally planning.
The nine-minute wedding went off without a hitch. The pastor presiding over the wedding was even a Carolina native and told Busch he was a Bobby Isaac fan. Afterwards, Busch posed for pictures, signed an autograph for Crystal's son and signed the couple's wedding document.
Weddings at NASCAR tracks on Sprint Cup weekends have become a fairly common occurrence. In August, a couple got married at Michigan International Speedway's victory lane as the groomsmen wore Dale Earnhardt Jr. firesuits. A year earlier at Michigan, track president Roger Curtis officiated a victory lane wedding.
But weddings with NASCAR drivers actually in them? Far more uncommon. Here's wishing the happy couple much success in the future.
