    Not sure how to link tweets. But Kyle and Samantha just lost their second child. This is aweful news. Kudos to Samantha for still showing up at the banquet. Prayers with the Busch family.

    They have my sympathy, it is a very emotional thing even for those with money.
    Not sure if IVF was involved, but it is tough financially for the average person and they do a great job with providing financial assistance to others pursuing IVF.

    Racing is a passion but I never want to see a driver or their family suffer for any reason, regardless of my thoughts about them at the track.(I am actually a Samantha fan).

    My heart sunk when I saw this and I'm honestly heart-broken for them both. I wish them nothing but the best through this all.

    Samantha Busch is a treasure. This is one of the kindest most humble human beings I have ever met. When you get a chance to meet her, she comes off like she has known you your whole life. She wants to know about you. ANYBODY taking a shot at her ever is an idiot. I think that in this context, she feels that maybe others will suffer less if they feel less alone. As always with Samantha, she is more concerned you--even when she is hurting.

    My only impressions of Samantha are from some little videos she did some years ago that I watched, and frankly the impression was NOT very good. Be that as it may, I wouldn't wish what Kyle and Samantha are going through on ANYBODY, and I'm sincerely sad for them. Things like losing a child are far more profound and heart wrenching then any of stupid things that go on around a race track that we like to argue about.

    That is truly sad news. I hate that for them. I wish them a speedy recovery.

    When you meet her, you realize that what she shares with her husband is that she doesn't care what anybody thinks of her. She is what she is. She hears the bull**** though, and genuinely feels sorry for them. I chuckle when I see idiots say something about her here....she would own them with kindness.

    My wife and I suffered 2 miscarrages before we were lucky enough to have our son. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Heart goes out to them.

    I can imagine that would be an awful thing to endure. Hard on both parents. A tough deal all the way around.

    Not that it matters in any way, but my impression from the videos I saw was "A living breathing Malibu Barbie". Sorry, that's just the impression I got, so I showed one of the videos to my wife and she said basically the same thing. I don't think I have to worry about ever meeting her, because I don't travel in those circles. Even when I was involved in racing, I didn't meet very many wives unless they were directly involved with the team. I MAY have met Jimmy Spencer's wife in 2001, and I met Randy Lajoie's wife in 1997. That's about the extent of my NASCAR wife meeting.

    Wow, that's heart breaking! Prayers to Samantha and Kyle and the rest of the family. I hope they keep trying! Brexton needs a sibling to lean on! :)

    Been through this too. It's a lot to shoulder. Prayers for the soul of the little one and for the strength of the parents.

    Thanks for sharing your insight. I assume you speak from personal experience and that will override any impression I may have based on a short tv/video clip.
    I can't imagine the grief Kyle and Samantha are experiencing.

    That video was genuinely difficult to watch. Can't imagine what they are going through. My thoughts go out to them.

    100% certain that she didn't want to do it, but kept her word to those following their story because she knew that it would help someone. That is Samantha.

    To bump this, I feel so bad. Kyle Busch reminds me of LeBron James, and other entertainers, such as Bo Burnham. Whether it's deliberate or not, celebrities today have two personas, their stage Persona / their sport persona, and their actual self.

    I think the Kyle Busch we see in yhe race car, and in interviews is a bit more theatrical exaggerated version of himself..he definitely plays the villain and has fun with it. Everything we see about him outside of the sport, whether it's him and his wife, or the two of them at foundations, seems to show a more genuine side of Kyle. I noticed this during the 2016 final four marketing tour. He has a chill personality, and Kyle seems like a good dad and a pretty good guy to hang around. Things like this tend to humanize him, and it just kind of sucks. He has the best year of his career, and misses out. Then loses a child. Feel really bad for him hope he and Samantha can overcome this

    I'm sure it helps her in a way also. Expressing things can be tough, but sometimes it can be really healthy to give the hurting part of you a voice

    I agree. Kyle Busch is a good person. Period. Samantha married a man of equal character IMO.
