Jordan Anderson gives update on his condition after Talladega crash

TALLADEGA, Ala. — Jordan Anderson gave another update on Monday on his condition after he sustained second-degree burns in a fiery crash during Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.

On Saturday night he was taken by helicopter to a local hospital for further evaluation. The 31-year-old driver said he suffered burns across his neck, face, arm, hands and knees.

Anderson’s No. 3 Chevrolet erupted in flames and smoke as he entered Turn 1 during the 19th of 94 laps in the Chevy Silverado 250. His truck slid toward the paved apron and came to a halt against the inside retaining wall.
