Kevin took a hard crash tonight. They got him out of the cat, here's hoping he's ok. They're taking him to the hospital so it's not good.

Only official word so far is that they took him direct to airport for a helicopter ride to Des Moines.   Sammy said that Kevin had a hard time feeling his legs in a radio interview.

Not having any luck streaming the race.  Twitter says Sammy left the A due to mechanical problem.  Was this in fact the case or did he leave because of the situation?

I was disappointed that The Cushion didn't give an update on Kevin's health.

Hope he's gonna be OK

 The doctors may not know anything for sure yet and don't want to say anything until they do. Am keeping Kevin and the Swindell family in my prayers for sure.

No matter who you cheer on, or what team you work for, at the end of the day we are all one Sprint Car family. My wife and I will be praying for a speedy recovery.

With HIPPA laws, the ambulance crew, announcers, etc. can't give any specific info unless the Swindell's approve.

Best wishes to Kevin, Sammy and Amy. I know many people have had some choice words for Kevin and especially Sammy over the years and I'm not the biggest Sammy fan myself (I don't hate him he just isn't one of my favorites) it's nice to see so many people sending their prayers and well wishes their way. It's scary when you hear that a guy is having trouble feeling his legs. I wish nothing but the best for him and I really hope he comes out of this ok.

It's never good when they get air and land like that on their wheels.  Some years back a guy by the name of John Nelson was driving the family car on a tight little quarter mile and landed like that.  When they hit the track that way the driver takes all that force sitting down.  In John's case he injured his back but the outcome is good and he hasn't driven since.  Now they put Brooke Tatnell in the Nelson #14 for select 360 races. 

As someone who had a couple discs compromised and ended up with a neck fusion as a result I feel a lot of concern whenever anyone suffers a neck or back injury.  Someone please post an address we can contribute to as soon as it becomes available and I'm in.  Hopefully there won't be anymore serious incidents at the Nationals this year and great racing will be enjoyed by all.
