Aric Almirola Hurt, Airlifted After Kansas Wreck


Aric Almirola needed to be cut from his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series vehicle and carried out on a stretcher following his involvement in a violent three-car crash on Lap 200 of the Go Bowling 400 on Saturday night at Kansas Speedway.

As Joey Logano's #22 vehicle headed into turn one, an apparent mechanical failure around his right front wheel caused him to suddenly turn left, hooking into the back right quarterpanel of Danica Patrick's Wonder Woman skinned #10 auto.

Aric Almirola sat trapped in his vehicle for nearly 15 minutes following a wreck that was started when Joey Logano made contact with Danica Patrick at Kansas.

Trump tax plan stands to benefit the man in the White House
Sanders said Trump's tax plan saying that it not only perpetuates a rigged system, but that it exacerbates it even further. And if he's really worth the $10 billion he claims? And his heirs could eventually enjoy his enormous assets tax-free.

The vehicle had to be cut open to remove Almirola. The contact sent Patrick shooting nose-first into the outside wall where she impacted the wall with such force it shoved the engine back toward the cockpit. I noticed it going in and tried to back off, but you're going 215 (mph) and I hooked Danica. He was taken off the track on a stretcher and eventually airlifted to Kansas Medical Center, FOX Sports reported.

"The right front popped and it took a hard left out of nowhere", Logano said, according to Frontstretch's Tom Bowles. "It's just killing me". I just hope that Aric's alright. After those two were involved, Almirola hit Logano hard, with his vehicle shooting up into the air.

Logano and Patrick were checked and released from the care center. I'm praying for Aric right now. "That's the last thing you want to see".

Clippers announce Blake Griffin to miss rest of playoffs with toe injury
Forward Blake Griffin left Friday's Game 3 win over the Utah Jazz with what was described as a bruised right toe, not to return. The team announced Saturday that the five-time All-Star was diagnosed with an injury to the plantar plate of his right big toe.

"Everything was fine and it just took a hard one".

Here is Danica's vehicle, with Logano's auto in the background. It seems like every time things are going better and something happens I get crashed or am in a crash. I just hope everyone is OK. "He definitely is feeling the worst of everybody".
