He was reportedly airlifted from the drag strip.

“If ever there were a time for us to ask for prayers, it is now,” Robin Roberts Racing said in a Facebook post. “Please pray for Robin.”

We have little information on his condition at this time. According to Radical Speed, he was alert when he was loaded into the helicopter.

“To all asking about Robin Roberts, we have terrible service at this track but he was airlifted from the track and was awake before he left,” they said in a Facebook post. “He is like family to us and we just ask for your prayers at this time.”

Depending on the severity of his injuries, Roberts may not be able to participate in the final two races of the season. The teams will have races left in Alabama and Texas to conclude the season.

He has one win this season. Roberts won the postponed Maple Grove Raceway event against Jerry Bird at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire.
