Ryan Hunter-Reay Transported to Hospital After Qualifying Wreck

Following a hard hit during his qualifying lap at Pocono Raceway, Ryan Hunter-Reay has been transported via ground to Lehigh Valley Hospital for further evaluation.

Hunter-Reay, who won practice earlier Saturday, broke loose in Turn 3 on his warm-up lap, spinning and side-slapping the outside wall. Without control, his No. 28 Andretti Autosport Chevrolet slid and impacted the inside wall on the left side.

Hunter-Reay was evaluated for injuries to his left hip and knee before he was released early Saturday evening. He will be re-evaluated Sunday morning to determine whether he’ll be cleared to compete.

Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 marks two years since Hunter-Reay’s last victory and sits 12th in points entering Pocono.
