Kevin Swindell Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, IOWA: The excitement of the Knoxville Nationals took a backseat early in Thursday's Night 2 of qualifying.

A scary accident took place at the beginning of the first heat race. Kevin Swindell flipped hard into the outside frontstretch wall and came to rest on he speedway. There was a lengthy red-flag period to get him out of the car.

Swindell was placed on a backboard and in the ambulance. According to officials, he was talking to track and safety personnel.

Legendary Sprint Car driver Sammy Swindell was also racing during the program. He, along with Amy Swindell, released a statement late Thursday night.

"Our son, Kevin, was racing tonight at Knoxville Raceway, when he was involved in an accident at the start of his heat race," the release said.

"Kevin was airlifted to Des Moines Mercy Hospital following the accident where he is currently undergoing tests and treatment.

"We want to thank the Knoxville Raceway safety team for their quick response and care. We appreciate the support of the racing community and thank you for your continued prayers. We ask that you please respect our privacy while we focus on his recovery."

The incident occurred when the front of the field got bottled up on the start. Ed Lynch hit the inside berm and shot up the speedway, making contact with Swindell and sending him into a series of flips.

Sammy Swindell, who is driving for CJB Motorsports, had mechanical problems in the 25-lap A-Main.
