NASCAR’s McClure stable, alert after accident

NASCAR driver Eric McClure was expected to spend a second night

at a Birmingham hospital after an accident at Talladega

Superspeedway.

Team spokeswoman Emily Brandt says McClure will remain at UAB

Medical Center on Sunday night.

His wife, Miranda, posted on McClure’s Facebook page that the

family is ”so thankful that he survived. It is nothing short of a

miracle that he was not hurt more than he is.”

McClure was taken to the hospital by helicopter after an

accident during Saturday’s Nationwide Series race. The multicar

accident involving McClure’s No. 14 Toyota brought out a 19-minute

red flag.

The family didn’t disclose further details about his

injuries.
