TALLADEGA, ALA. (AP) - NASCAR driver Eric McClure was expected to spend a second night at a Birmingham hospital after an accident at Talladega Superspeedway.

Team spokeswoman Emily Brandt says McClure will remain at UAB Medical Center on Sunday night.

His wife, Miranda, posted on McClure's Facebook page that the family is "so thankful that he survived. It is nothing short of a miracle that he was not hurt more than he is."

McClure was taken to the hospital by helicopter after an accident during Saturday's Nationwide Series race. The multicar accident involving McClure's No. 14 Toyota brought out a 19-minute red flag.

The family didn't disclose further details about his injuries.
