The Earnhardt family has car racing in their blood, and with that comes wrecks and even deaths.
The most recent crash comes from Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 18-year-old Niece, Karsyn Elledge, a sprint car racer who had a scary incident on Tuesday (July 9) at a USAC Racing Event in Oklahoma.

Although the crash looks bad Elledge was NOT seriously injured and will be taking the week off to recover.
After a lot of thought & conversations with those important to me, I will be taking the remainder of the week off to rest my body & let it heal. My health and well-being are my top priority. I’m thankful to be with @TBMotorsprts & @TMCTRANS and have them behind me 100%.
