After a terrifying crash, the NASCAR community is wishing the driver well.
On Saturday afternoon, an airlift was required to remove a NASCAR driver from the track.
Driver Jordan Anderson of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series sustained second-degree burns in a fiery collision during the race on Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway.
The fire started in Anderson's automobile when it was surrounded by drafting trucks. Anderson attempted to slow the truck down and manoeuvre it onto the track apron,
but three places around the vehicle burst into flames. Fortunately, Anderson was able to escape the burning vehicle even though it was on fire. The collision was quite horrifying.
Anderson, a 31-year-old resident of Forest Acres, South Carolina, was driven to the infield medical center before being flown to a hospital in Birmingham.
Anderson later revealed on Twitter that he sustained second-degree burns on his face, neck, arms, hands, and right knee. Thankfully, he tweeted, "it wasn't worse."
Anderson tweeted that he anticipated leaving the hospital Saturday night and that according to his doctors, he should "heal up within a few weeks."
Anderson participates in the Truck Series on a sporadic basis. His best placing this season is 14th.
