Anyone know what went wrong with his car here?
Michael L. Humphrey, 69, of Owsego had just completed a practice lap — when he made it off the track without any incident. Once he arrived back at his trailer, witnesses say his car became engulfed with flames. Humphrey was still trapped inside the vehicle as others in the area worked to frantically remove him.
I hope he's ok.

Per the updates, Mike has undergone several surgeries to place temporary skin grafts on his hands, arms, and legs. I believe she said they would work on his abdomen today, and may need to place a trach (breathing tube). There was a fear of pneumonia setting in.

There is also a GoFundMe page in place for anyone who would like to donate. Mike's wife is driving daily from Oswego to Rochester, and we all know gas is not cheap. Let me see if I can find the link.
