... will race on Sunday.
ATLANTA (SI.com) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. will compete Sunday in a NASCAR race in New Hampshire, despite suffering second-degree burns to his legs and face in a fiery wreck last weekend, his friend said Monday.
Earnhardt suffered burns to 6 percent of his body -- his chin and the inside of both legs -- in Sunday's accident during a practice run for a race in Sonoma, Calif., his doctor said
Earnhardt was driving a Corvette C5-R in a practice session for the American LeMans Series at Infineon Raceway when the car spun and hit a barrier in Turn 8 of the track, then became engulfed in flames.
Earnhardt, who was wearing a burn suit and a full-face helmet, climbed out of the car on his own but was unable to recall the accident after being airlifted to the hospital, said Greenhalgh
The video of the burning car, with him in it, made me wonder how he survived, even with the burn suit.
