Brittany Force is going to be OK.

Force, the reigning¬† NHRA world champion, was released from the hospital, according to John Force Racing and reported by Racer.com. She’s sore and has bruising on the lungs, but is otherwise OK.

And, lucky.

Force was involved in a horrific wreck during the first round of final eliminations at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals at Pomona’s Auto Club Raceway.

Force, in the right lane, veered left, slammed into the wall, and then bounced back to the other side. She was taken to a hospital and admitted as a precaution. She did have some bruising on her lungs.

In a press release, the NHRA said:

According to team representatives, she was responsive, speaking with medical personnel, and was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. Force suffered no major internal injuries but does have some bruising of the lungs. A CT Scan was negative and the MRI showed subtle findings likely from previous injuries. She was admitted overnight for observation simply as a precaution.

Force sent out a photo of herself from the hospital.

Hopefully, she’s back on the track soon.
