After he was removed from his car, Roberts was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

“I am a still in the hospital in Charlotte,” Robin Roberts Racing said in a Facebook post on Sunday night. “I still have no memory of the pass or anything until I woke up this morning in the hospital and Melody told me about it. I have some recovery time for 3 ribs, a big concussion and a collapsed lung. They say I can go home tomorrow, I cannot wait to be home so I can relax. Home is where the heart is and where I am most comfortable.

“Keep the Faith!! Special Thank you to the fans of NC!”

Due to his injuries and Roberts looking at several weeks to recover, he will not be able to conclude the season. The No Prep Kings have two races left on the schedule.

The first race is this weekend At Alabama International Dragway in Steele, Alabama. Their season will conclude right before Halloween at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas.

The Alabama race is taking the place of Tulsa Raceway Park event. Due to circumstances out of their control, the Tulsa event became a non filming/non points race.

This was due to the death of Street Outlaws producer Mike Helmann. He was found passed away in a hotel room near the Tulsa track.
