some driver better motorboat some monster tits before the season is over......
DAMN!! That was a nasty wreck. Hopefully Almirola is OK.
Almirola was airlifted to a local hospital, where he's going to be held tonight for observation. The information I've seen suggests he was complaining of back pain.
Almirola out of hospital with fractured vertebra
Compression fracture for Almirola. Isn't that the same injury Stewart had before last season?
I'd say he'll probably wind up missing the rest of the season.
Hamlin also. I'd say Almirola is looking at 10-15 races out. I hope RPM can broker a deal with Roush to get Bubba Wallace in the 43, but it will probably be someone with previous Cup experience like Casey Mears.
I don't think Sam Hornish is doing anything, and he drove for RPM a couple years ago, that would be my bet for the replacement.
Rumors are it's 50/50 between Mears and Biffle.
Both are done, but at least Biffle is a has been and not a never was like Mears.
Not like the 43 car ever has a legit chance to win at non restrictor plate tracks.
Exactly. If anything Biffle might show Almirola up.
RPM reached out to Edwards, he respectfully declined.
Regan Smith is filling in for Almirola for the All-Star Race (he'll have to race his way in via the Open, because he's not eligible for the fan vote). Smith is said to be available for any races needed beyond that, but no timetable has been set for Almirola's recovery yet.
One of his vertebrae was crushed in half is what Almirola is saying. He wasn't going to make the Chase anyway unless he stole another win at Daytona, so he should take all the time he needs for it to heal properly. His long-term health should come first.
Great job giving Kyle the win, Kes. #fuckingidiot
2018 schedule released, Charlotte playoff race will be on the road course.
Indy to host NASCAR's regular-season finale
I'm happy they added Richmond to the playoffs. Indy in September will feel weird.
There's gonna be some absolute shit viewing angles for that race. But its not like they'll have much of a crowd any way so it won't matter.
Red Byron, Ray Evernham, Ron Hornaday, Ken Squier and Robert Yates headed into the HOF.
