Johnny Benson (reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion) was hospitalised after his car collided with another car (driven by Larry Lehnert) before bursting into flames in an International SuperModified Association (ISMA) 50-lap race at the Berlin Raceway (nr Grand Rapids, Michigan) on Saturday 13th June.

Although Benson was taken to hospital (with reported burns and broken ribs) he was discharged three days later and is expected to make a full recovery, Lehnert was not injured in the crash.

A Youtube video of the crash can be found here:
