Unconfirmed social media posts suggest that Tingle is home from the hospital.

“Praying for my homie Aaron Tingle with a bad wreck tonight‼️ BigSilverSurfer,” Cam Brooks said in a Facebook post. “Accidents happen and nothing that can be done about them, but afterwards is what matters. People and tracks we have to do better with these safety situations, me or my crew will not be racing at any tracks that don’t have an EMT ambulance/crew and without the proper safety gear being worn.

“No blame here with all the great ppl (people) we race with (track crews and racers) but this should be a learning situation and eye opener for everyone as far as safety, but more importantly here, Aaron is alive. Nothing negative here but this car and accident should be the light to some improvements and awareness in the dangerous racing world we participate in.”

The race track reportedly did not have an ambulance on site. Tingle was competing in a race against a black car.

After the finish line, Tingle lost control of his vehicle and then hit the far wall. Then, according to the video, he went across the dragstrip and hit the other wall, before coming to a stop.
