“Street Outlaws” star Daddy Dave (also known as David Comstock) was seriously injured during a drag race at the Amarillo Dragway in Texas last Satuday night, TMZ has learned. The video shows Daddy Dave losing control of his vehicle and proceeding to slam into a wall of barriers before the car continuously rolled over a few times. At that time, Daddy Dave was reportedly driving a Chevy II.
An ambulance took him to the hospital where he is currently in stable condition. Early on, Daddy Dave’s wife Cassi had taken to his Facebook page to let his fans know what’s going on.
Cassi posted, “They have done X-rays and scans, we are just waiting for the results. He is in a lot of pain, pretty banged up and a serious concussion. He is talking but doesn’t remember anything or even where he is. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers and I will do my best to keep y’all updated!”
Later on, Cassi took to Facebook again to deliver a bit of good news to her husband’s fans. She wrote, “Scan came back good. He has a serious concussion, a bruised lung, and plenty of bumps and bruises. Still doesn’t remember anything that happened. He is finally resting in his own room for at least the next 24 hours. We cannot thank everyone enough for the thoughts and prayers! I am thankful to have my husband alive! I’m sure he will be back, just need time to heal and go from there!”
According to “Street Outlaws” show website, Daddy Dave is currently the reigning “King of the Streets.” Among his prized vehicles is a 1996 GMC Sonoma S10 pickup. He has been racing for more than 20 years and his sport is funded by construction mogul Jackie Knox. Moreover, his racing vehicle boasts of high performance racing parts that are worth more than $150,000.
According to Discovery Channel, “Street Outlaws” takes viewers “into the world of American illegal street racing.” Moreover, Oklahoma City is said to be where the “fastest street cars in the country” can be found. Here race drivers take street racing very seriously. And they are willing to do anything to become number 1, including risking their lives.
