Sprint Car driver Daison Pursley has had a long recovery. But on Sunday, it was all worth it.
Pursley won the feature race at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri. He won the POWRi Lucas Oil National/West Midget race.
He was seriously injured on November 13, 2021. He broke his neck. Pursley had a nine month recovery before he was allowed to compete in a race once again.
Pursley began to practice on a track in late July. He returned to racing in August.
“Nine months ago, I didn’t think I would ever race again, for this to be possible I can’t thank this team enough,” Pursley said after getting the win. “Not only for keeping a ride open for me but all their help and support. This truly felt like a lifetime coming back but it means so much to me.”
He was able to fend off the other drivers to secure the win following the 25 lap feature.
