Joey Gase, who was transported to a local medical facility after a crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, has been released from the local hospital.
He was involved in a violent crash at the NASCAR Cup Series playoff race at Las Vegas. On lap 92, his car spun and the left-rear tire came off his car, due to which his car went airborne and strikes the inner wall when it landed.
While the driver was able to walk on his own to the ambulance, he was transported to the local medical facility for further evaluation.
