Chase Cabre was transported to a local hospital following Thursday eveningâs NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Bristol Motor Speedway, according to NASCAR HomeTracks.
Following the race, Cabre, who is a member of NASCARâs Drive for Diversity Class of 2019, was able to exit his No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota under his own power, but immediately received medical attention for lower back pain. Cabre was then placed onto a stretcher and carted to the infield care center.
Cabre held the lead at the start when eventual race winner Sam Mayer got into the back of his car at the entrance of Turn 3 on Lap 1, sending him spinning into the outside retaining wall. The 22-year-old completed the 150-lap event, finishing eighth.
Cabre provided an update later in the evening:
Hey guys. Little update: Still having a lot of back pain, very painful to move my lower half. Was transported to the local hospital just for precautionary measures. Thanks to everyone for the support.
