Cody Ware is left with only discomfort in his left ankle after a horrific crash Sunday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway that sent his car into the Turn 4 wall and the pit road wall.

On lap 168, Ware’s #51 Ford Mustang veered to the right and hit the outside wall head-on. The badly damaged car then went off the track and down pit road, bouncing off Alex Bowman’s pit wall. Fortunately, Ware missed a hole in the pit wall right in front of Bowman’s stall.

Ware got out of the car on his own, but then demanded attention. He was loaded into an ambulance on a stretcher, but was treated and released from the in-house center.

Robbie Benton, general manager of Rick Ware Racing, said Ware had some discomfort in his ankle but was not concussed, and he also underwent X-rays.

“No broken bones,” Benton said. “I feel like we’ll probably keep an eye on it just as a precaution. He will see a specialist at Ortho Carolina as soon as we get home. ​​​​​​​While it was a tough blow, we are thankful that it is still clean and he can go home tonight.”

Ware’s hit on the outside wall in Turn 4 necessitated repairs to correct her form. No one was injured in the pothole.

“We’re thankful for the riders,” Benton said. “We had a bit of a delay going through the usual protocol of X-rays and checks to make sure there were no fractures. All this became clear. He’ll be on the team plane with us to return to Charlotte tonight and we’re glad he’s OK.”
