Ryan Truex update

Ryan Truex taken to hospital after practice crash UPDATES: NASCAR Sprint Cup rookie #83-Ryan Truex hit the Turn 2 wall hard Saturday morning in the day's opening practice session at Michigan International Speedway. Running eight laps in the early morning session, Truex lost the back end of his #83 Toyota. The car corrected and shot head-on into the outside wall. Per NASCAR's new rule, Truex remained in the car until NASCAR and safety officials arrived on site, and then walked away under his own power. According to a BK Racing official, Truex was complaining of a headache and shoulder pain and was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. Truex broke his collarbone in 2013 while riding a motorcycle.(Fox Sports)(8-16-2014)
UPDATE: Ryan Truex, driver of the #83 Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry was involved in a single-car crash during practice at the Michigan International Speedway on Saturday.

He will follow the NASCAR guidelines to return to racing. JJ Yeley will pilot the #83 Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry in tomorrow's Pure Michigan 400.(BK Racing).(8-16-2014)

Re: Ryan Truex update

Another track that Nascar uses that doesn't have inside barriers all the way around. Not good at all. Glad Ryan is ok today but concussions do carry ramifications in the future.
