The 26-year-old hit the wall extremely strong and almost hit the opening in the pit wall.

He was stretcher from his car and being loaded into an ambulance.
According to motorsports journalist Jeff Gluck the ambulance transporting Ware drove to the infield care center and did not leave the racetrack.
So damn scary for Cody Ware. That was a very hard hit, then the pit-road hit.
