Earnhardt's sister talked about the crash in a tweet Thursday afternoon.

"I can confirm Dale, Amy and Isla along with his two pilots were involved in a crash in Bristol, TN this afternoon. Everyone is safe and has been taken to the hospital for further evaluation. We have no further information at this time. Thank you for your understanding," Kelley Earnhardt said.

NBC Sports released a statement about the incident since Dale was supposed to be part of the broadcast covering the Bristol Motor Speedway race on Saturday.

“We’re incredibly grateful that Dale, his wife Amy, daughter Isla, and the two pilots are safe following today’s accident. After being discharged from the hospital, we communicated with Dale and his team, and we’re all in agreement that he should take this weekend off to be with his family. We look forward to having him back in the booth next month at Darlington.”

Thankfully everyone is well...
