NASCAR's Aric Almirola out 8-12 weeks with broken back

NASCAR's Aric Almirola out 8-12 weeks with broken back

While trying to avoid the accident, his vehicle went loose hitting some oil and water resulting in being unable to steer the auto.

Regan Smith will replace the injured Aric Almirola in the Richard Petty Motorsports No. 43 Ford during the Monster Energy Open Race on Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

While Smith is in the auto for this weekend's All-Star festivities, the team has yet to map out a battle plan for the remainder of Almirola's absence.

The wreck was a scary one that resonated across the NASCAR community, as even Dale Earnhardt Jr. commented on the incident in an interview Thursday. "And I said, 'Hey, don't forget, Wednesday night is Catwalk for a Cause, so as long as the doctors let me we're still going'".

However, they seemed to inexplicably lose their wits and lost 10 wickets in the space of just 43 runs to be all out in 19.2 overs. For Sunrisers, Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have done bulk of the scoring and emerged as the highest run-getters of the season.

"I felt like from that point my vehicle was on railroad tracks and I was just headed straight for the wreck", Almirola said. That's most important to me.

"I wanted to see it, but I didn't want to see it that night", Almirola said. I knew it was coming. Almirola won't be required to wear a back brace Heisel said because it was a "very stable fracture" due to the ligaments connecting the bones being intact.

"I'm glad to be here, too".

Aric Almirola will be sidelined for an extended period from injuries sustained in last week's accident at Kansas Speedway. "I'm going to take some time to relax and recover and do everything necessary to get back in the racecar as soon as possible". "When I threw it forward, I was in a lot of pain with my back already and that made it worse extending my hands out in front of me". Looking back on the crash, he feels there is nothing he could have done differently.

It also marked Kim's second win on the PGA Tour after he was victorious at the Wyndham Championship a year ago . Now he's here to stay for at least the next five years, and based on his game, probably much longer.

For the time being, doctors said he can't pick up anything weighing more than five pounds, which is especially troubling for a father of a 3-year old and 4-year-old who are accustomed to spontaneous rides on dad's hip.

When Almirola and Devin's turn to strut - or, in Almirola's case, gingerly step - down the runway came, the crowd of 650 guests and donors' polite clapping turned into a roar of support.

"The doctor told me the very first day he saw me, 'obviously you're in good shape. I've got a handsome family and I want to be able to run around outside and throw the baseball with Alex and I want to go to father-daughter dances with Abby and I'm not going to do anything to jeopardize that".

"Really, I'm just supposed to give it a break".
