Christian Bowman had a scary night on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. He had a crash between turns 1 and 2 during the 360 Main Event.
He will be resting for the next several weeks, his Facebook post said.
“We could not be more thankful for [the] Knoxville Raceway safety crew and the safety equipment in the sprint car doing its job to keep him safe,” the team said in a Facebook post. “Christian was taken into Knoxville ER to get checked out. His X-Rays came back good [with] no broken bones. His CT scan showed signs of [a] concussion and eye hemorrhaging. We rushed him to Wolfe Eye Clinic at 2 am to get a closer look at his eyes from an opthalmologist.

“He currently has some bleeding behind his eyes and as you can see from the photos, some severe swelling. Everything is stable right now. We will continue to monitor him as the week goes on.”
At this time, we are not sure when Bowman will return to competition. According to Healthline.com, an eye hemorrhage could heal on its own within seven to 14 days.
