Taylor Gray was involved in a single-car accident Wednesday night in Statesville, North Carolina, and transported to a local hospital, according to a statement from David Gilliland Racing.

The team states that Gray, 16, remains in stable condition.

An accident report by the Statesville (North Carolina) Police Department stated the vehicle was going an estimated 70 mph in a 25-mph zone when it went across the center line and off the left side of Bethlehem Road on a curve. The accident report stated that the vehicle traveled through a field and across a dirt access road where it came to rest. The report stated that the vehicle caught on fire once it came to rest. No driver is listed on the accident report because it was a juvenile.

Gray competes in the ARCA Menards Series. He is scheduled to make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut April 17 at Richmond Raceway. The team said in its statement that his participation in that event will be determined at a later time.

Gray has 13 career ARCA Menards Series starts, including one this year. He finished ninth at Phoenix for David Gilliland Racing. He won one race in the ARCA Menards West Series in 2020, taking the checkered flag at Oct. 25, 2020 at Kern County Raceway Park.
