John Force, one of the greatest drivers in the history of the National Hot Rod Association, is reportedly hospitalized in an intensive care unit following a crash earlier in the week.

The legendary motorsports figure sustained a head injury from a fiery high-speed crash that occurred during the Virginia Nationals.

Here is some of what Chantz Martin reported on the tragedy for Fox News:

Four days after the accident, Force was taken to a neurological intensive care unit, his team confirmed in a statement.

 

“Four days after his crash at more than 300 miles per hour, drag racing champion John Force has moved from the trauma intensive care unit to the neuro intensive care unit, where the medical team can focus on his head injury, which is their primary concern,” the update said.

 

Immediately after a “catastrophic engine failure,” Force was “conscious and talking” with the on-site medical team, his team said at the time.

 

He was initially placed in trauma intensive care shortly after he arrived at a hospital not far from the Virginia Motorsports Park.

 

“The move was a welcome positive for his family members, who have maintained a daily presence at the hospital all week,” the statement continued.

 

“With the unanimous support of her family, team, and sponsors, Brittany Force is not planning to compete this week at the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio, where she would have driven the Cornwell Tools Chevrolet Top Fuel dragster. Instead, she will remain at the hospital with her family in solidarity for her father.”
