The Go Bowling 400 was halted with 67 laps remaining on Saturday night following a three-car wreck involving Aric Almirola, Danica Patrick and Joey Logano that resulted in Almirola being stretchered off the track before he was loaded into an ambulance.
Jerry Bonkowski of NBC Sports reported Almirola was airlifted to University of Kansas Medical Center.
The crash occurred on the 40th lap of the race’s final stage when Logano’s front right tire appeared to go flat, which sent him into the side of Patrick’s car.
Fox Sports relayed video of the crash on Twitter:

“The right front popped and it took a hard left out of nowhere,” Logano said, according to Frontstretch’s Tom Bowles. “I just hope Aric’s alright.”
Logano and Patrick both walked away from the crash and were cleared following evaluations with infield medical care staff.
While an update has not yet been provided regarding Almirola’s condition, the FS1 broadcast stated that he was conscious when he was placed on the stretcher.
