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.

Taylor Reimer finished second. Brenham Crouch finished third.
