Rallycross driver Scott Speed was injured on Friday while driving his ARX Rallycross car in Utah at the Nitro World Games. He was injured in the first qualifying heat after coming down hard.

Despite being injured, he was able to complete the heat. He then exited the car before being transported to a local hospital.

“CT scan confirmed a destroyed t6 then was taken to a spine specialist at University of Utah,” Speed wrote on Facebook. “Finally got an MRI done around 3 am… We found I have 3 fractured vertebrae. Waiting now for the surgeons to give us the game plan. Last night was easily the scariest and most painful time I can remember. Was in a pretty dark place.

“But I want to thank so much everyone, who came and spent time with me. No way I could hav made it thru alone. @peterbminnig will forever have a place in my heart for all that he did and luckily the best cousin in the world @jekka_arellano lives here to play mama bear for me.. so excited to see Amanda and dad here soon. Thanks for all the kind text messages.”

After being injured, Subaru Motorsports USA, the Rallycross team he competes for, said Speed will miss the rest of the event. With a broken back, he is expected to miss several months – possibly even closer to a year – before he will be able to compete once again.
