NASCAR Busch Series driver
Brad Keselowski crashes, CT scan and X-rays negative.
NASCAR Bush Series driver Brad Keselowski was released from the
hospital today after a violent four-car crash Saturday night in
the middle of the Camping World 300 at California Speedway. Brad
Keselowski, who drives for Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s JR Motorsports,
injured his leg in the crash and was airlifted to a hospital for
further evaluation of his injuries.
Today NASCAR officials confirmed that
Keselowski was in good condition and all of his tests, including
X-rays, came out negative. He will have to clear a
neurosurgeon before deemed fit to race at Richmond this week, as
per NASCAR regulations.
The accident occured when A.J. Allmendinger,
J.J. Yeley and Eric McClure bounced off each other while
battling for position heading into Turn 1. The collision sent
Allmendinger down the banking, where he clipped Keselowski and
sent him hard into the wall. Keselowski's car hit the Turn 1
wall and skidded on its side along the wall in a ball of flame
before finally coming to rest.
