Jamestown pure stock driver Brandon Michel went for a wild ride Saturday night at Jamestown Speedway.

Michel, driver of the No. B52 bomber car, and Aberdeen's Ashley Wampler (24W) tangled on the front straightaway during a heat race, resulting in Michel making hard contact with the outside wall and barrel rolling in front of the main grandstand.

Michel walked away unharmed. Click through the series of photos above to see the incident unfold.

Michel was one of three drivers to turn a car over on Saturday at the speedway.

Jamestown's Charlie Christ was the second after he had an axle let go in the 15-lap bombers feature. Christ rolled hard off Turn 2 and came to a stop on the passenger-side door of his No. 79C machine.

Christ was alert and communicating with emergency workers, but he was put in a neck brace and later taken to Jamestown Regional Medical Center for observation.

The Dakota Legends Tour feature race also ended with a car on its lid. Nate Keena rolled off Turn 1 immediately after taking the checkered flag and finishing 11th in the 20-lap feature.

See Monday's edition of the Jamestown Sun for more on Saturday night's action. Kids' Night at the track is up next on June 24.
