ARCA driver Taylor Gray was hospitalized with multiple fractures after he was in a single-car crash in Statesville, North Carolina, on Wednesday night. 

Gray, 16, was slated to make his Truck Series debut later in April at Richmond. His David Gilliland Racing team said in a statement that Gray was in stable condition on Thursday morning and said later in the afternoon that he had suffered a fractured L4 vertebra as well as a fractured left foot and ankle. 

The team said that Gray is expected to make a full recovery and that his No. 17 truck would be withdrawn from the April 17 Richmond race. 

Gray has made 13 starts in the ARCA Series and has eight top-five finishes and 12 top-10 finishes. His best finishes are two third-places.

Gray was penalized earlier this year by NASCAR after he filmed himself from the cockpit while testing an ARCA car at Daytona and posted the video to Snapchat. NASCAR fined Gray $1,000 and placed him on probation. 

Gray's brother Tanner has made 31 Truck Series starts over the past three seasons. Tanner Gray moved to NASCAR and the Truck Series after competing in NHRA Pro Stock and winning the 2018 championship. Tanner and Taylor's grandfather is Johnny Gray. He competed in NHRA and is now a part-owner in David Gilliland Racing.
