Roger Burgess and Rickie Smith crashed in Bristol, Duana Hagan crashed in Denver, and Gaylen Smith crashed in Topeka.

They're not allowing any video of Hagan's crash, if there is any.

Duane Hagan, a Top Sportsman racer, crashed Friday night during qualifying for the Division 5 Lucas Oil event at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colo.

According to Bandimere Speedway track personnel, Hagan, who is from Gillette, Wyo., crashed his 1963 Corvette during his run and hit the wall. Right after Hagan's car hit the wall, it accelerated through the finish line and into the sand trap. Hagan came to a stop in the track's shutdown containment area, which included safety nets.

Track and NHRA safety officials extracted Hagan from his car where he was transported via ambulance to St. Anthony's Hospital in nearby Lakewood. Bandimere Speedway track personnel on Saturday could not offer any details on Hagan's injuries, but did say he was being taken care of by St. Anthony's doctors.

He did hit the trap at speed, went threw both nets, up the berm and the car was stuck in the catch fence. A friend of mine Dave Walters was in the other lane.

I know someone may have mentioned this already, but at the track this morning they announced he was in an induced coma due to head injuries and broken legs/ankles. Prayers sent.

Google earth says the sand trap is 275 feet long, including both nets.
