NASCAR At Talledega 2012: Eric McClure Injured In Wreck During Aaron's 312

Eric McClure had to be airlifted off the track during the Aaron's 312 at Talladega on Saturday following a nasty wreck that took out several cars. McClure's car was totaled in the wreck after it slammed head first into the inner wall. The wreck was started from the middle of a tight pack when Kevin Harvick's No. 33 car swirled out of control.

SB Nation's Jeff Gluck is at the race, and was able to get a photo of the damage.

It took several minutes to get McClure out of his car. At one pit his pit completely emptied as team members gathered around monitors at Austin Dillon's pit to watch. McClure was eventually removed from the car, placed on a stretcher and taken to UAB Medical Center in Birmingham.
