“Hey everyone,” Chase Randall said in the updated post. “As most have seen or heard I was involved in a pretty scary wreck last night. I first want to thank the Knoxville Raceway fire crew for doing an outstanding job getting to me quickly. All of my Simpson Race Products safety equipment performed just like it should to keep me as safe as possible in that situation.

“I used Inferno Armor last night for the first time and I am so thankful I did. It worked exactly as intended and gave the track crew time to get to me and me not feel any heat from the fire at all. I have a little spot on my chin from the flash that came up through the cockpit but other than that I have no burns, scratches, or anything on my entire body.”

Despite the accident, Randall said that he’s fine.

“I am doing okay this morning,” Randall added. “Taking some much needed rest today so I can be ready to go again on Tuesday. Thank you to everyone who has messaged me or Alexa to make sure that we are doing good. That was one of the scariest moments I have had in my racing career so far. I hope people can see the things that helped my situation to make sure everyone is as safe as possible each time they hit the track because you never know when it will happen.”
