Anderson airlifted to Birmingham hospital, later released, after frightening incident in Saturday’s Truck Series race

TALLADEGA, Ala — Jordan Anderson’s No. 3 Chevrolet caught fire on Lap 18 of Saturday’s Chevrolet Silverado 250. Andreson, 31, was in the middle of the pack before having to back out as his truck engulfed in flames. As he was trying to slow, Anderson smacked the inside wall at Turn 2 exit.

It appeared that he was already unbuckled at the time because once his truck came to a quick rest, he quickly climbed out and escaped.

However, he was injured and was airlifted to a Birmingham area hospital for further evaluation for burns as well as being in obvious pain.

Anderson was making his fifth start of the year in the Camping World Truck Series. He is also a team owner on the Xfinity Series side, fielding a full-season effort for driver Myatt Snider.
