After being cleared from the infield care center, Dillon addressed the media where he described just how bad of an impact it was as he thanked God for keeping him safe.
First, he described the wreck, “I saw a blue hood and an impact like I’ve never felt before in my life. Luckily, the Good Lord was keeping an eye out for me, keeping me safe. The racecar was safe.”
“That was a big one,” he continued. “I just hate it for our Ferris Camaro. We were really running strong, having a good day, cashing some points, and we’re still going to get a good finish by getting stage points. And there’s nothing you can do about it.”
“Just a string of bad luck that we’ve had this year and can’t seem to shake it. You just keep your head down in times like this and you keep working hard for your goals and your dreams and you come back better and stronger and you know things happen you just got to keep at it,” he added.
When asked about the possibility of a slight limp when he exited the vehicle following the crash, Dillon responded, “No, I just got hit by a car going about 170. So it takes a second to get your bearings back after that, but I’m all good.”
Dillon also posted to Twitter, “Yesterday was about the hardest I’ve been hit by anything. Grateful to God that I’m okay and these cars are safe enough to take a shot like that.”
He added, “We had a good run going with our Ferris Mowers Camaro. We’ve been running better, just things are happening. Onto the next one.”
