Young Sprint Car driver Alli Johnson says that she is doing fine now. Her Sprint Car caught on fire.

And she said in a post that she had to go to the hospital. She was competing in a race at Skagit Speedway in Burlington, Washington when the crash and fire happened.

“After last night’s (Saturday) scary crash and car fire I wanted to update you all that I am okay!,” Johnson said in a Facebook post. “Thankfully I was able to get out of the car quickly. In the moment it felt like a long time but it could have been a lot worse and for that we are very thankful. I was seen and treated by the Skagit ER department. I will have to see wound care later this week to make sure it’s healing and not getting infected. Im pretty sore from the impact and have a good sized second degree burn on my leg.

“I was discharged a little after midnight and am home. Thanks to everyone for checking in on me 🫶”

Johnson finished last in the Sportsman Sprint Cars. She was 16th in the A feature.

At press time, it is not clear if Johnson will take time off. Or if she will come back to race soon with a second car.
