Willard Kinzer, the 84-year old driving sensation in the National Muscle Car Association series, crashed while testing in Bowling Green, Ky., on Thursday. According to a statement issued by the NMCA on their website, Kinzer suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung.
Kinzer was kept overnight in a hospital and released on Friday morning. He returned home to Allen, Ky., to recuperate.
A witness described Kinzer’s run as starting off decent before getting loose just before the eighth-mile mark. The car turned sideways and made hard contact with the retaining wall. The impact broke the engine’s throttle body, hanging the throttle wide open. The car headed down track before coming to a stop in the shutdown area.
CompetitionPlus.com wishes Mr. Kinzer a speedy recovery and hopes to see him racing soon.
