Stewart Friesen has been transported to a local hospital for further evaluation after a crash during Saturday‘s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Playoffs Round of 8 race at Talladega Superspeedway.

Friesen and postseason contender Christian Eckes collided on entry to Turn 3 during the contest‘s 39th lap, with Eckes‘ right-front fender tipping Friesen‘s truck in the left rear. The nose of Friesen‘s Toyota bounced off the right side of Tyler Ankrum‘s truck, sending both vehicles into the retaining SAFER barrier.

Friesen exited his truck under his own power but appeared shaken after the impact. The AMR Safety Team assisted Friesen to the ambulance, which first transported him to the infield care center before he was later transported to a local hospital.
