A violent wreck with 60 laps to go in the Go Bowling 400 NASCAR race in Kansas left a lot of people holding their breath as Aric Almirola had to be pried from his car and removed on a stretcher.

The wreck started when something went wrong with Joey Logano's car and he took out Danica Patrick. After those two were involved, Almirola hit Logano hard, with his car shooting up into the air.

Almirola was conscious and communicating with personnel. However, rescue workers had to remove the top of his car and pry him loose.
