Aric Almirola had to be cut out of his car after being collected by a fiery wreck between Joey Logano and Danica Patrick during Saturday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway, and he left a local hospital Sunday with a compression fracture in his back. His driving status is to be determined.
Emergency personnel worked for 15 minutes to extract Aric Almirola from his car after the driver was caught up in a wreck initially involving Joey Logano and Danica Patrick during tonight’s race at Kansas Speedway.
A record was tied in today’s chaotic overtime NASCAR Sprint Cup Series finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Winning driver Jimmie Johnson now sits alongside Dale Earnhardt Sr. for most top-level Sprint Cup Series wins, at 76 overall.
