After a trying few days, NASCAR driver Kyle Busch had the chance to do what he does best this afternoon: race. 

Busch, his wife Samantha and their two children were at the Mall of America in Minnesota on Thursday when an active shooting situation unfolded.

Thankfully, the entire family was unharmed, though the experience had to be terrifying. With the traumatic event behind her, Samantha Busch was at Michigan International Speedway today to watch Kyle compete in the FireKeepers Casino 400.

She, Kyle and their son Brexton shared a touching moment before the race started.

Unfortunately for Busch, things on the track didn't go as planned. He was unable to finish the race after being involved in a multi-car wreck.

Still, after what happened last week, no doubt Busch is feeling lucky to be able to be out there at all.
