Jackman Zack is on the mend.
Zack Young, jackman for the No. 37 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet of driver Chris Buescher, is doing better after being upended by Buescher’s spinning race car on pit road during Sunday’s race at Texas.
Young released this statement Tuesday to NASCAR Talk:
“Thanks to everyone that’s reached out. Right now, I’m just waiting on results from a MRI of my right hand. I’m fortunate and lucky we have an off weekend to recover.”
Young was fitted for a protective cast over his right hand at the track’s infield care center.
The team said it has no update yet whether Young will be able to be back on pit road for the next NASCAR Cup event, April 23, at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Here’s a tweet Young posted of the incident, as well as a couple of other related tweets:
