Samantha Busch, wife of NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, grew up far from the world of NASCAR in St. John, Indiana. Raised by her parents, Steve and Donell Sarcinella, with younger brother Steven, Samantha lived within a half an hour of her large Italian family.
Samantha’s love for fitness and health began early in life. After working in a health club in high school, she continued working as a fitness instructor, teaching body sculpting and spin classes while attending Purdue University. During this time Samantha also worked as a promotional model doing print work and appearances for such companies as Sprint, 17th Street Surf Shop and Bailey’s. In 2008 Samantha graduated with honors from Purdue University with a BA in Psychology. Currently Samantha is studying for her master’s degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology.
Samantha met Kyle in the summer of 2008; they took their relationship slow and dated long distance until she finished college. After graduating, Samantha moved to Charlotte, NC and she and Kyle became engaged in February 2010 and were married on New Year’s Eve 2010.
Kyle and Samantha’s wedding was fit for a King and his Queen; the lavish evening was planned out to perfection by Samantha and her wedding planner. Samantha was hands on day in and day out using her eye for colors and style to present an elegant evening that was enjoyed by 300 of her and Kyle’s friends and family. The event was all captured through the lens of Style Network for a reality show that aired in March of 2011. The show received an overwhelming reaction from the viewers and showcased the exquisite taste that Samantha possesses.
As an integral part of Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), Samantha incorporates her studies in psychology and experience in the fashion industry to help manage and design clothing for KBM. Recently Samantha received the honor of being asked by NASCAR apparel company Chase Authentic to designed three pieces for Kyle’s women’s collection including a tank top, Henley shirt, and sweatshirt. Incorporating looks that would not only be flattering but also stylish, her pieces became available to the public in August of 2011. Sales took off and Samantha has already been asked to continue working with the company on more pieces.
Samantha brings her love for family into her work with the Kyle Busch Foundation (KBF), which supports five children’s homes in Michigan, Las Vegas, Georgia, North Carolina, and Arizona. She has been instrumental in fundraising efforts and functions that have helped raise money and awareness for the Kyle Busch Foundation.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while living life on the road as a NASCAR wife can be difficult, but with her experience in fitness, Samantha is dedicated to staying active and sharing her tips with the community. Her busy lifestyle and commitment to fitness earned Samantha the cover of Women’s World magazine and a feature story in August 2010. Keep up with Samantha on her website as well as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for all her style, beauty, and fitness advice.
