Driver Eric McClure was reported to be in stable condition and alert Sunday, one day after a late wreck in the Nationwide Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.
McClure was transported to an Alabama hospital by helicopter, but NASCAR officials said he was awake and speaking to medical personnel at that time. He was continuing to undergo tests Sunday at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital, a team spokesperson said.
The multi-car accident brought out a 19-minute red flag, after which Joey Logano nipped Kyle Busch at the finish line for the victory. Michael Annett appeared to be turned into Brad Keselowski, and cars began spinning all over the track.
McClure's No. 14 Toyota darted head-first at high speed into the inside wall of Turn 3. The car's roof had to be cut and peeled back for McClure to be removed.
