A driver burned at Kanawha Valley Raceway has been upgraded to stable condition at Cabell Huntington Hospital. The 2007 Night of Fire was supposed to be a night of fun, but on Saturday night it took on a very literal and dangerous meaning!

The marketing director at the track tells us Bob Motz was in his truck at the starting line when it caught fire.
He suffered second and third degree burns and was airlifted to Cabell Huntington Hospital’s burn unit. He was in critical condition Saturday night. Sunday afternoon a hospital spokesperson says he has been upgraded to stable condition. A track worker was also hurt and suffered some minor burns, but is expected to be okay.
