Injured jackman posts video of being hit on pit road

Zack Young

Driver Chris Buescher, the No. 37 JTG Daugherty team and NASCAR fans were relieved Sunday when jackman Zack Young tweeted that he was OK after being hit amid a spin on pit road at Texas Motor Speedway.



While entering pit road during a competition caution on Lap 30 of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500, Buescher's car was clipped by Erik Jones' No. 77 Toyota. That spun Buescher into his pit stall, and the rear tires flipped toward pit road and crashed into over-the-wall crew member Young.


On Tuesday, Young tweeted the video, as taken from the front tire changer's helment camera.

Young told PitTalks.com that he "jumped but got hit by the right rear quarter panel, which threw me a good 10 feet in the air toward pit wall."


Young told the website on Tuesday that he was treated immediately after the incident at the Texas Motor Speedway infield care center and was later seen by Charlotte orthopedic physicians. It appears nothing in his hand was broken, but he will receive a full report this week.
