While practicing for this weekends American Le Mans race, Dale Earnhardt Jr spun his Corvette and suffered facial and leg burns. It is unclear at this time exactly how serious the injury is and when he will be back in any car racing. Earnhardt was able to get out of the behicle on his own and walked away.

Associated Press
SONOMA, Calif. - Dale Earnhardt (news - web sites) Jr. was treated for minor burns on his face and legs and hospitalized after an accident Sunday during practice for the American Le Mans Series Infineon Grand Prix of Sonoma.

Medical officials at Infineon Raceway described the injuries as "moderate-sized burns of moderate intensity." Earnhardt was flown to the University of California-Davis Medical Center in Sacramento for precautionary reasons.

Racing is dangerous, it would have been neat to see him race in the Le Mans race, but hey, we can't win them all.
