Tomy Drissi NASCAR Xfinity Update

Tomy Drissi was unable to participate in this week’s NASCAR Xfinity race at Mid-Ohio. Following an incident during the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen, Tomy received minor injuries and has yet to be cleared by NASCAR and doctors.

Tomy, driving the No. 14 Arthritis Foundation Toyota, was the victim of  a sizable wreck on Lap 18 in a section of the track known as the Esses. Todd Bodine was hit by Ryan Sieg and put into the wall and the field began to back up behind him, taking out a number of cars, including Drissi, Kyle Busch, J.J. Yeley, Blake Koch, Bubba Wallace,  and others. Despite the violent impact, no one suffered any serious injuries. The race was red-flagged allowing track workers to remove the wrecked cars across the track.

“I’ve received so many well wishes from friends and fans,” said the TransAm champion. “I was suppose to race with the TriStar guys again this weekend at Mid Ohio. I love that place and was really looking forward to being there. Unfortunately, due to the injury sustained last weekend, my doctors and NASCAR would not approve me to get back in the car.”

“I want everyone to know I'm doing ok and on the mend,” added Tomy. “And I want to congratulate Justin Marks on his first NASCAR win. What a great drive!”

Tomy is looking forward to rejoining the TriStar Motorsports team at  the Road America 180 Fired Up by
