Sprint Car driver McKenna Haase was involved in an accident following her race on Saturday night. The incident happened on her way back to Indianapolis, Indiana after competing with the All Star Circuit of Champions at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio.
She said that she was rear-ended leaving her race shop that caused a hospital visit. This accident, according to her, will likely end her 2020 season.
“A lot can change in 24 hours, last night on the way home from the shop after racing Fremont, I was rear-ended hard on the Interstate and spun 180 into a guardrail,” she said on Instagram. “My head hit the steering wheel hard numerous times and the airbags did not deploy and my seat was laid flat and twisted. I spent the night in the hospital, and as God would have it, the doctors were surprised with clear scans after what was suspected to be a fractured jaw and nose. I do have a concussion and my face, jaw, head, and neck are in a lot of pain.
“However, I’m grateful to be alive and grateful it wasn’t worse. Thank you to my race team, friends, and family for coming to help immediately. I’m devastated my racing season has more than likely come to an end, and I won’t be climbing any warped walls anytime soon. I’d appreciate any phone calls this week since I won’t be very active if any of you have some free time. Just another bump in the road to overcome.”
She qualified 41st for the event at 59.999. Haase also finished seventh out of eight cars in heat race No. 5 that Shane Stewart won.
