Update on Driver Patrick Sheltra


Sheltra Motorsports has issued the following press release on the condition of its driver Patrick Sheltra, who was involved in a late-race accident in Saturday's ARCA Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona:

ARCA RE/MAX Series driver Patrick Sheltra remains hospitalized at a local Daytona Beach, Florida hospital Sunday evening following an incident in Saturday’s Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway.

The 22-year old driver underwent several tests Saturday night and into the day Sunday with most of the results returning negative. Nevertheless, Sheltra, the Indiantown, Florida native is suffering from a compression fracture in his back from injuries sustained in the first ARCA race of the season. At this time, no surgical procedures are planned for Sheltra, who finished 14th in Saturday’s race.

The family and the Whitesville, Kentucky-based Sheltra Motorsports team has expressed extreme gratitude and appreciation of Sheltra’s well-being and recovery. The outpouring support of emails, phone calls, prayers, text messages and voicemails have been overwhelming.

We are glad to hear that Patrick is doing relatively well and wish him a quick and full recovery.
