Danica Patrick takes wild ride in fiery wreck at Kansas

NASCAR driver Aric Almirola suffered a compression fracture to his T5 Vertebra after his vehicle got in a vicious crash during the Go Bowling 400 on Saturday night.

Aric Almirola has been released from the hospital after suffering a compression fracture in his back in a violent crash Saturday at Kansas Speedway.

Almirola was expected to fly home to Mooresville, N.C., after spending Saturday night in the University of Kansas Hospital.

Almirola was the last to pile into a three-car incident which also involved Danica Patrick and Joey Logano. While everyone dropped their window nets immediately to signal that they were conscious, Almirola took the hardest hit and had to be helped out of his auto by emergency crews. Richard Petty Motorsports released a broad statement regarding Almirola early Sunday morning. He was transported by helicopter to a local medical facility for evaluation.

"I'm OK. Just saying prayers for Aric right now". You can see the right-front popped and it popped. "Let's hope that Aric is alright". He has had a pair of fourth-place finishes at Daytona and Talladega this year, and he won an Xfinity Series race May 6 at Talladega.

That turned Patrick hard on into the outside wall; Logano piled straight into her. Almirola, unable to slow down piled into both cars on the high line. I kind of felt like Wonder Woman out there for a little while. I definitely had a feeling it was the 22 and I am sure that the doctors in the medical center checking my neurological abilities are glad to know I was right that it was Joey. As the lone driver for Richard Petty Motorsports this season, his health is of the utmost importance for the No. 43 team. That contact caused Almirola's Ford to lift off the ground and a fireball to engulf Patrick's auto. Almirola then ran into Logano. You never know when it is going to be the wrong hit.
