Aric Alimirola Expects To Miss Most Of NASCAR Season With Back Injury

Aric Alimirola Expects To Miss Most Of NASCAR Season With Back Injuryā€¯

The Petty team on Thursday named Regan Smith as interim driver for Saturday's All-Star night festivities at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Almirola was involved in a fiery crash during Saturday night's NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway.

Aric Almirola is less than a week removed from being involved in a horrific crash at Kansas Speedway, but the driver of the No. 43 vehicle is still out trying to be a positive influence in the world.

Real ID Bill Passes Minn. House and Senate, Heads to Gov. Dayton
That plan still led to a messy, one-day special session that almost derailed over disagreements on environmental spending. Late Friday morning, House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, said they had placed a "cone of silence" on their discussions.

Almirola's No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford smacked the already wrecked cars of Joey Logano and Danica Patrick with 68 laps remaining in the Go Bowling 400, bringing out a red flag. "I've got a lot of baseball to play with my son and I'd like to dance with my daughter one day at her wedding".

"Looking back on it and watching the replay, I'm very thankful that that's the only thing that happened in that wreck; that I got a broken back". It was the most helpless feeling because I saw the wreck.

"I didn't think I was that lucky, but after talking to all the doctors in Kansas and Charlotte I realize how lucky I was", he said. That days that Aric is not available to move around because of the pain and because of the guarding are days that he's not using those muscles fully and we're going to have to rehabilitate those.

Trump Asked Comey to Shut Down Flynn Probe
The White House quickly responded to the Times story, claiming in a statement that 'the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn'.

"So, I think that violent drop from 6, 7 feet in the air, coming down and hitting the left-side jack post and the left-side frame rail put all of that energy right up to my back", Almirola said, "I can tell you that at Martinsville when we run really low frame heights and really low air pressure, when they drop the jack on the left side, it's violent on a pit stop, so I'm fairly confident that dropping a vehicle from 6 feet into the air down onto the left-side jack post is a very big hit". I'm young. I've got a lot of life ahead of me. "I just slid right into the wreck". "When I left Homestead previous year, I legit didn't know if I would ever sit in a Cup vehicle again".

Almirola said he attempted to avoid the wreck but couldn't due to his vehicle getting in some oil or water, which prevented him from steering it. "This year it just made some sense to do some truck races and sit back and see what was going on in the Cup series. Being out 8-12 weeks and not having a chance at the Playoffs, obviously that stinks, especially coming off Talladega".

"We're still working through that with our partners", Moffitt said, "so as soon as we know for the future, we'll be letting you guys know that".
