The Story of a NASCAR Driver That Will Give Even Hollywood a Run for Their Money

Everyone can agree that racing is a sport that involves high risk. Plenty of NASCAR drivers’ careers have ended because of medical complications caused by racing. Of course, Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s career ending because of concussion-like symptoms due to crashes is the most obvious example. That’s not all though, his own father lost his life in a race.

But this time, we see a former Xfinity series driver from Deville, Louisiana, whose career met an untimely end caused by a crash. And the worst part is that he couldn’t tell anyone his story until a year later.

The driver had his Instagram account hacked and could inform no one. So, when he got his account back, he put up a post where he described what happened in the comments.

“So quick run down… last January my account was hacked. Created a new one. Never got back in this one. Got a new phone and it brought me back. Well on May 14, 2021 my racing career ended in a massive wreck at Georgetown Speedway. I broke my neck and back in that wreck.”

“Have since come home and just ran the engine shop with dad. Have had my neck surgery. Waiting on back and shoulder surgery. So we are doing great! Would love to be back in a car. But the health and well-being of my body is more important. So yeah… Welcome back to my instagram.”
