UPDATED: ANGIE SMITH TRANSPORTED TO MEDICAL CENTER AFTER NHRA MIDWEST NATIONALS ACCIDENT
Pro Stock Motorcycle racer Angie Smith was involved in an accident during the second qualifying round at the NHRA Midwest Nationals outside of St. Louis, Mo.
Smith became separated from her bike shortly after passing the finish line at World Wide Technology Raceway. She came to a rest in the track's shutdown area.
NHRA officials confirmed Smith was alert and conscious and was examined by medical personnel before being transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation.
Sadie Glenn, spokesperson for Matt Smith Racing, has confirmed Angie suffered two broken feet and extensive road rash as a result of her crash Saturday afternoon. Smith is expected to meet with a skin graft surgeon on Sunday morning.
"They wanted to say thank you for all the messages and phone calls and we will give updates as they come. What's important is Angie is stable and going to be okay."
Ironically, Smith was riding opposite of Cory Reed, a Pro Stock Motorcycle rider who crashed at the 2021 NHRA Carolina Nationals, suffering an extensive leg injury.
Smith's run was nothing out of the ordinary as she recorded a 6.880 elapsed time at 198.93 pass.
