A fiery crash last weekend involving Terry Muskrat, Brian Wolfe, and Steve Little during the 50-lap main feature of the 2nd Annual Stock Car Nationals at Oklahoma Sports Park. During the wreck, one car in particular took on a large amount of flames and the driver, Terry Muskrat, seemed trapped in his race car. When 27-year-old driver and competitor, Kip Hughes, saw Terry’s car engulfed in flames he did what no one expected. The young driver stopped and came to the rescue of his competitor.

Kip Hughes said:

“I don’t want that to ever happen again for anybody,”Hughes told the Ada News. “Whether I’m battling it out with them on the race track and we’re exchanging (gestures) or whatever else, it’s a horrible deal for a family to go through.”

A local news station reported on the incident:

According to KFOR-TV, the Terry Muskratt became trapped in his burning car after being involved in a multiple-car crash. When Hughes saw the flames, he stopped racing to help get Muskratt to safety, tearing away the protective window net and pulling Muskratt from the car.

“The adrenaline’s going and I’m just thinking, ‘I gotta get this guy out before something bad happens,”‘ Kip told CNN.
