This is not how you should exit a racetrack.

Karsyn Elledge, the daughter of Kelley Earnhardt and niece of Dale Earnhardt Jr., crashed during a USAC sprint car race Tuesday night. The crash was so violent that Elledge’s car flipped over the wall and out of Red Dirt Raceway in Oklahoma.

Take a look at how crazy this is. Thankfully Elledge was OK.

If you had a knot in your stomach while watching it, imagine how Elledge’s mom felt while watching it live.

This wasn’t the first time that Elledge, 18, had gone flipping in a sprint car race this season. She had a crazy flip in March at DuQoin in Illinois.

Elledge, currently in her first season in USAC, is 19th in the standings of the midget car division standings.
