“Thank you everyone for the support and prayers!,” Robin Roberts Racing said in a Facebook post early Sunday morning. “In time, Robin is going to make a full recovery. Shout out to RJ Race Cars for ensuring driver safety in every detail of the car! We will tell more when we have a chance to catch our breath.”

We do not have more information on his condition at this time. The team will make more updates on his condition as available.

Radical Speed said that Roberts was airlifted to a local hospital for further evaluation. They also said he was alert at the time of being airlifted away.

Depending on the severity of his injury or injuries, Roberts may be forced to miss the final two races of the season. The teams will compete in Alabama, which took the place for filming purposes of Tulsa Raceway Park.

There was no filming and no points awarded for the Tulsa event due to the death of Street Outlaws producer Mike Helmann. Following the Alabama event, the teams will conclude the schedule at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas at the end of the month.
