NASCAR Driver Aric Almirola Cut Out Of Car After Terrifying Wreck Involving Danica Patrick At Kansas Speedway

By Timothy Downs

A brutal accident occurred involving Aric Almirola, Danica Patrick and Joey Logano at Kansas Speedway on Saturday night, and the footage is nothing short of horrifying.

Emergency workers cut the roof off Almirola’s car to get him out safely. He was subsequently airlifted to Kansas Medical Center for observation.

Logano told reporters:

“All of us took a hard hit. Something broke on the car – I don’t know what it was. I noticed it going in (to the turn) and tried to back off but you’re going 215 (mph). I took a hard left. I just hope everyone is OK. I hooked Danica. I haven’t seen the replay (until now). don’t know what happened. The right-front popped and I took a hard left. I hope Aric is alright. That’s the last thing you want to see is a big hit like that for anyone.
“It came out of nowhere. Everything was fine and I just took a hard one. I’m praying for Aric right now. I hate to to be the part that started it but there was nothing I could have done. Something broke and we tore up a lot of cars.”

We’ll update this post as news on Almirola’s condition breaks.
