Finally, during a red flag for weather, we were all able to exhale as Ware has been checked and released from the infield care center.

And here is footage from inside Ware’s car of the incident:

According to USA Network’s Kim Coon, Ware underwent x-rays due to discomfort in his ankle. However, Ware was not found to have any bone breaks and he was not diagnosed with a concussion.

Rick Ware Racing’s team manager Robby Benton says that he expects Ware to compete next weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, but it will all hinge on clearance from NASCAR.
