He then rushes to the aid of Pearce. Ranks drove his car throw the dirt and grass as fast as possible without losing control of the vehicle.
As soon as he was back onto the street, he gets closer to where Pearce went off the track. Ranks then stopped his vehicle.
He gets out of his car and then goes running towards the field. Ranks still had his helmet and firesuit on as he rushed into the field.
The video cut off before we saw if Pearce was OK.

“What a race here,” Texas Streets said in a Facebook post. “Luckily, Waylon was OK! He got right back in his truck and turned the MF on and drove out of the brush. Jason himself swung the car in a hurry like Tokyo Drift rushing to Waylon to go see if he needed help or was OK that shows a lot right there! Respect to both guys. What an awesome race and a wholesome thing to do no matter what.
“At the end of the day, no one wants to see anyone hurt or anyone’s car gone.”
