yeah he hit a non safer barrier wall at about 100mph head on.(luckily the wall gave. JJ has a pic of that on his twitter also)

He has asked the question that maybe Nascar should lighten up on the testing ban, so they dont have to test at more dangerous tracks.

at least raise the ban on road courses, since there are only two, i dont see how it would hurt having a 3 day test at both tracks....

Brad is very lucky if he didn't end with alot of injuries. I hope for is sake that is the case. We all know what has happened in the past for the exact same kind of crash.

OUCH!! :cry: :cry: ..... Been there three different times. Looks like alot of ligaments and tendons got REEEEEAAAAAAAAALLLLLLY stretched. From the pic it doesn't look to be broken, but, then again mine didn't either the third time I did it and I had broken the fifth metatarsal in three places. Hopefully he'll be able to race, it'll hurt like a biotch tho' :(

I'm hearing that Sam Hornish, Jr will be on standby for Cup race, and Parker Kligerman (sp) will run the Iowa Nationwaide race

it looks like his ankle swallowed a freaking grapefruit! i simply cannot see him finishing a race this weekend, but he's a stubborn, proud young cuss....

hope he heals quickly!

He said that he will race this weekend.I can't see how he would be able to put on his shoes if it is still like that.I don't think they will clear him .

All I can say is wow :!: I've seen swollen ankles before but this pic shows a big "owie". Even the picture of the car is a scary sight. Thank goodness for all the improvements Nascar , drivers, owners,fans and sponsors have insisted on.

not a Brad K fan, but glad the dude didn't get hurt any worse than he did.

in an indycar, both legs would've been broken (in multiple places) at the very least.
