Aric Almerola broke his back in an accident in Saturday’s race. The sad thing is, he could have missed whole thing if he could have stopped in time.
The worst part is, this is not the first time this sort of downward movement has caused a back injury. Denny Hamlin experienced something similar. Ironically Joey Logano was also involved in this incident too.
You’re never going to make racing totally safe, but I wonder what could be done to prevent injury in these sorts of instances.
