Saldana Injured By Flying Debris

Joey SaldanaLAS VEGAS — World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series driver Joey Saldana was injured during Thursday night’s World of Outlaws FVP Showdown at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Saldana started eighth in the dash and had moved up two spots when he was hit by a piece of debris that flew through the right side arm guard causing a hematoma on his right arm.

He was transported privately to UMC hospital in Las Vegas where the pressure in the hematoma was relieved. He was released from the hospital early Friday morning.

Lucas Wolfe substituted for Saldana, starting at the back of the field and took the green flag in the A-Main to earn the team’s starting points.
