Aric Almirola hospitalized after crash involving Joey Logano, Danica Patrick

Almirola was alert after the accident as safety professionals removed him from the auto.

Aric Almirola was airlifted to a local hospital after he was involved in a violent three-car accident in Saturday night's Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway.

The crash was caused when something on Joey Logano's No. 22 Ford broke, sending him hard into Danica Patrick's No. 10 Ford in Turn 1 shortly after a restart on Lap 69.

He believed he was going about 215 miles per hour when the failure occurred, while Almirola was airlifted to the University of Kansas Medical Center to be held overnight for observation. That led to Logano sliding left and being able to go nowhere as Patrick as got up over him and a fiery crash ensued between the two. The impact had such force, it caused Almirola's rear tires to lift off the ground and a fireball to engulf Patrick's auto. Richard Petty Motorsports released a statement clarifying he was in stable condition as he stayed at the hospital overnight for observation.

He has since been released and will fly back to his North Carolina home on Sunday. I just hope that Aric's alright.

North Korean diplomat open to USA talks 'under the right conditions'
The Trump administration has called the tests unacceptable and has swung between threats of military action and offers to talk. It's the latest in a series of tests by Pyongyang as it pursues a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach the US mainland.

There is no timetable for Almirola's recovery, and RPM has not stated who will drive its No. 43 Ford in Saturday night's All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Danica Patrick's first race in her Wonder Woman branded #10 vehicle was tonight at the Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway and it had a scary ending!

Almirola's injury is similar to one suffered by Denny Hamlin in a 2013 wreck in California, where he made contact with Logano's auto on the final lap and struck the inside wall near pit road.

"All of us took a hard hit", Logano said. "The right front popped and it took a hard left".

Martin Truex Jr. won the race, his second victory of the season.
