Speaking for the first time since a frightening accident at Kansas Speedway last weekend, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Aric Almirola revealed he waited a day, while still resting in his hospital bed, to watch video footage of his wreck - a wreck he says will sideline him for at least two months.
Aric Almirola is less than a week removed from being involved in a horrific crash at Kansas Speedway, but the driver of the No. 43 vehicle is still out trying to be a positive influence in the world.
Almirola said his father was a firefighter and he had learned from him that it was important to keep one's spine stable if one felt neck or back pain in an accident. He saw the cars of Danica Patrick and Joey Logano come up the track abruptly into his lane and into the catch fence.
Almirola sustained the injuries during the NASCAR Go Bowling 400 when he collided with Joey Logano's wrecked auto. "And I got a really bad burning sensation in my back".
"For me, I think the most challenging part is never getting comfort or relief", Almirola said. I feel like an idiot even being involved in the wreck.
Almirola suffered a compression fracture of his T5 vertebra, just above the middle of his back. "The doctors and neurosurgeon in Charlotte have written me a prescription to go and sit in a chair at the beach".
After the impact with Logano sent his vehicle in the air, Almirola's Ford "violently" hit on the left-side frame rail and the left-side jack post.
How long will Almirola be out of the auto? "I just slid right into the wreck". "The obvious thing is that the circumstances suck. Being out 8-12 weeks and not having a chance at the Playoffs, obviously that stinks, especially coming off Talladega".
"The process that we had was when we got back to North Carolina, the King and Drew (Blickensderfer, crew chief) and Aric and I sat down and came up with a list of people after we knew what the diagnosis was, and we're still working through that with our partners", Moffitt said.
While Almirola will not be able to perform his driving duties, Regan Smith will pilot the No. 43 Ford Fusion this weekend in the Monster Energy Open at Charlotte Motor Speedway. "As soon as we know for the future we'll be letting you guys know that, but right now we're thrilled that Regan's going to be in the auto for this weekend".
