Motorsports is a risky business. Everyone knows the risk to do what they love.

Despite the risks, the drivers and crews still risk their lives to entertain the fans. Sadly, on Saturday, according to a Facebook post, two unnamed drivers had to be airlifted to the hospital.

At press time, we do not have much information. Both tracks have not commented on the incidents yet.

“I have no details, as they don’t matter anyhow,” Dothan Motor Speedway in Cottonwood, Alabama said. “All I know is a driver have been airlifted from both South Alabama and Northwest Florida speedways tonight. Please join us in praying for both of these drivers and there teams and families 🙏”

The tracks involved are South Alabama Speedway and Northwest Florida Speedway. South Alabama Speedway is located in Kinston, Alabama.

Northwest Florida Speedway is located in Baker, Florida. Both tracks are approximately one hour from one another.

Northwest Florida Speedway had advertised Purestock, Stinger, and Bonbers in a Facebook post. Additional classes may have participated. 

As of press time, we do not know who the driver was or what category he or she was competing in before needing medical assistance. We do not know if there was a crash or medical emergency before being airlifted.

The track has not made a public statement yet on the incident. 

South Alabama Speedway — which is referred to as the Home of the Rattler — has not commented in the incident at their track yet either. They had advertised in a Facebook post that they were hosting Super Stock, Roadrunners, Coyote, Crown Vic, Cuplite, Mini Cups, and Mini Sportsman.

Similar to the Northwest Florida Speedway incident, we do not know who the person was. Nor do we know if they were involved in an accident before needing medical attention.
