there is a wheel we are on in the world that will come from his jd ara In the pa net and evidently he has and jimmy means he's going against the wall while it means he's airborne thank god he got in there while JD was airborne it looked like that wheel came off the car before it came off the track and

crash

ed out to the grass area there but there's a lot of damage to the wall as you can see and of course our main concern is the condition of JD McDuffie the other car involved as Jimmy means and he's already out of his car , the ambulance on the scene is now helping JD. we'll be back with more of the Budweiser at the Glen in a bit as the Glen the race was stopped we had a serious

Thanks. Jimmy means one of those involved in this accident at turn five. This is the same corner that Tom Kendall was injured in a few weeks ago in a gtp when he broke the suspension or bushing on that car and he went in hard and now he's probably watching this race this afternoon from his home in California and He's doing well in his recovery from Lagan's foot injury sustained in that crash and now we're looking at the crash scene where they're still trying to get JD McDuffie out of that car we're going to Jerry hit Bob I'm standing in the hole of JD mcguffey as they watch most of the crew members working on JD's car weekend we have our not here they have already left to go back to the garage area to check on JD they had radioed JD a couple times after the accident and they hadn't heard back it means that it doesn't mean that JD is injured it doesn't mean anything at all as a matter of fact you remember at Talladega when they had the big accident in In May, Kyle Petty's team couldn't talk to Kyle because Kyle's radio had gone offline, which is not uncommon with an impact at a racetrack and they thought Kyle was more serious. hurt than he was and of course they were scared but the team here couldn't talk to JD they left the pit area and went back to the garage area to try and get more info we'll update when we hear more from here. you never know about the severity of these crashes, as he pointed out to Jerry, some that look really bad turn out to be not so bad as far as injuries go, and on the other hand, some that don't look that bad can turn out to be in serious injuries. all we can do right now is pray that JD is okay and that he can get out of that car quickly to the ambulance and treat him at a local hospital in the meantime with the race on hold here at Watkins Glen we'll take this break Jerry. hit now with chip willia ms from NASCAR ok with more info on the status of JD McGuffey here's chip williams the director of public relations for NASCAR and chip what's the info Jerry and Bill I'm sorry to inform you that JD McDuffie has passed away, he was 53 years old of course. our hearts at this time were his wife Imogene and their children Jeff and Linda and it's a really very sad day right now a terrible tragedy here in Watkins Glen and of course being concerned with safety whenever there's a tragedy like that, you're always trying to possibly figure out the death call to try to prevent this from happening in the future.

It's always hard to report death for any reason because they know the dangers in the dangers and choose to run because they love it. JD McDuffie was in his third Winston Cup 650 race. He had never won a Winston Cup event, but only his last. Ironically, the night in a widowed New York at Shangri-la Speedway Jamie McDuffie was in a celebrity race and JD McDuffie was driving the o7 car, believe it or not he took the checkered flag first and won that race right down the street from Watkins Glen International where his race finished today JD stepped out of the car with his son Jeff looking on and was cheered and congratulated by everyone in the grandstand jadi McDuffie leaves behind his wife Jean and their two children Jeff and Linda, our deepest condolences to the entire McAfee family from all of us here at ESPN Gene.
