Horrible Nationwide Wreck

Thank God all the drivers are okay. That was about as heart-stopping a crash as we've had in a long time. Very concerned about the No. 33 crew guy who was hit by the spring, not liking the vibes I got from the end of the telecast and discussions on Twitter.

Re: Horrible Nationwide Wreck

That was a bad wreck! Both Joey & Clint were very lucky the way Clint's car hit the 20 in the driver's window and went on it's side. There isn't much out there yet on the condition of the pit crew member hit by the flying spring, but it sounded like his leg was a bloody mess. :(

Re: Horrible Nationwide Wreck

What Carl did was take the air off Joeys spoiler,just hard racing and really nothing wrong with it,just unfortunate of the outcome.The #33 really spooked me for a momment,till i heard he was ok.Brads comments on Kyle pushing through him again,i wasn't sure as to what he meant,i heard Kyles rpms drop just before he hit Brad?

Re: Horrible Nationwide Wreck

This time, Kyle had no place to go. Once Brad sees the replay, maybe he'll realize that. Nobody's fault... with so many cars wrecking in front of them, there was no place to go.

Re: Horrible Nationwide Wreck

His name is Glen Wheeler, he's being held overnight. All the report from KHI says is that he has left-leg injuries. Doesn't mention fractures, surgery, or anything, so maybe it was just a major laceration or something. Everyone was talking about how bloody it was so hopefully it's just a flesh wound. The way they were talking on ESPN after the race, it sounded really bad.

Re: Horrible Nationwide Wreck

Wow, what a mess. I've watched this several times and it looks to me (I'm not an expert on wreckage) like a free for all that just happens. Kyle was lucky he wasn't surrounded by cars. Thankful that all the drivers were okay and hope the crew member recovers quickly.
