Crash Causes NASCAR To End Race Early In Kentucky
Ben Kennedy crashes into the catch-fence at the Camping World Truck Series in Kentucky causing NASCAR to end the race early.
"I'm fine" after being released from the track's infield care center. He said he heard 'clear' and was trying to get a good arc into the corner...got up on top the of the wall for awhile, you don't really know what to expect being up there and then falling down from the wall to the ground was pretty hard hit as well.
Kennedy told FOX Sports 1's Hermie Sadler. "Thank the good Lord for keeping me safe, and everything NASCAR does to keep these trucks safe. Had this been a few years ago, I don't think I would have got out of my truck under my own power like that."
According to Fox Sports Kennedy is the great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France and the son of Lesa France Kennedy, chief executive officer and vice chairperson of the Board of Directors for International Speedway Corporation.
This is the second week there has been a crash damaging the catch-fence during a NASCAR race.
