While much of the country — who are interested in Sprint Cars — were watching the Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, Jeb Sessums had a bad crash on Saturday night. The incident happened at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas.
According to an online report, Sessume was transported to a local hospital. The social media post said that he was alert and talking.
As the video shows, Sessums was already flipping over when the video cut to him. He flipped over several times and even flipped over a fence into a grass area before coming to a stop.
In a post on the Devil’s Bowl Speedway, it was the first-time that Sprint Cars ran at the track since 2010. Jake Zimmerman won the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour event presented the MAVTV Motorsports Network.
Sessums was one of three drivers, who received a DNS on the A-Main. The other two were Tucker Doughty in the 2X Sprint Car and Brad West in the 9TX.
According to SprintSource.com, Sessums won his first career ASCS win in June at Heart O’ Texas Speedway. He won the Nolan Wren Memorial race.
The ASCS website says that Sessums has competed in three races this season. He completed in two events at Heart O’ Texas Speedway in Waco, Texas in May and June.
After nearly two months, he returned at Devil’s Bowl Speedway on August 10th.
Two of his events were an ASCS Non-Wing Sprint race. The other was an ASCS Sprint event on June 14th.
