SARVER, PA (July 25) -- Three-time Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series champion Sammy Swindell hoped to defend his Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup championship at Lernerville Speedway Tuesday. Crashing into a push truck between his qualifying laps dashed his dream, however.

Swindell's #1 CHANNELLOCK Stealth collided with a push truck on the front straightaway after completing his first qualifying lap. He suffered a fractured right ring finger, a cracked kneecap, contusions and broken bones in his left hand and contusions to his head and groin area. Swindell was treated, held overnight for observation and released from Butler Memorial Hospital in Butler, PA, Wednesday. Swindell had a cast on his right hand and a brace on his left leg when he and his family headed home to Cordova, TN.

"The car did its job," Sammy said. "The down tubes saved my life."

Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series Founder and President Ted Johnson wished Swindell a speedy recover.

"Sammy has been with us since the series started and we hope he can be back racing with us soon," Johnson said.

Swindell hopes to recover in time to race in the 41st Annual Amoco Ultimate Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway August 8-11. WoO
