The front axle on Erin Crocker's sprint car broke during a heat race at Knoxville Raceway Thursday night causing her to slide into another car. Wheel interlock meant Erin was cleared for liftoff, doing about six "endos."
Erin's husband, Ray Evernham, got to witness the crash up close from the pit area. Pretty certain I would have crapped my pants if my wife took that wild ride.
Fortunately Erin walked away with just a bit of soreness and tweeted about it Friday (@crockerin) and Evernham (@skiprec) reportedly did not fill his pants.
