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.
Thank you everyone for the texts, calls, and prayers. Haven‘t been able to be on my phone, but I am so humbled by the overwhelming support.
Had to go to the ER last night for some side effects, so heading to the Wake Forest burn center tomorrow.
Getting better by the day! 🙏🏼

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.
Anderson quickly exited the truck to the attention of the safety crew and was taken by ambulance to the infield care center. A NASCAR spokesperson confirmed that Anderson was transported from there to a local hospital.
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.
