BRISTOL, Tenn. - Larry Pearson, son of three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion David Pearson, was airlifted to a nearby hospital after a frightening crash Saturday in a legends race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The 56-year-old Pearson, a two-time Nationwide Series champion, was knocked unconscious after the car of Charlie Glotzbach slammed into the driver's-side door of Pearson's late model stock car in Turn 2 at the high-speed .533-mile short track. Emergency workers extricated Pearson by cutting the roll cage of his car.

According to ESPN analyst Dr. Jerry Punch, who spoke with Pearson's brothers, Ricky and Eddie Pearson, Larry Pearson regained consciousness before he was lifted out of the car on a backboard and transported by ambulance to a waiting helicopter.

According to Punch, the brothers described Larry Pearson as "awake and alert."

David Pearson, who also was competing in the 35-lap event, withdrew from the race to visit his son in the hospital. Glotzbach was treated in the infield care center and taken to a local hospital for further examination.

The legends race was not a NASCAR-sanctioned event.
