Nick Nevins, Jake Snyder, & Pat Lange Marshalltown Speedway Fire

Friday, September 19th, Nick Nevins, Jake Snyder & Pat Lange was severely burnt when working on a generator at Marshalltown Speedway. Nick had just got done winning his heat race and came back to the pits. He noticed the generator was not working so he went to the cabinet in the trailer to investigate. He heard a hissing but with no sense of smell, couldn't determine if gas was leaking or what. So he determined that they needed to get out of there to fix it. The metal bars were extremely hot so as he went to get rags, he called over Pat Lange and Jake Snyder to help pull it out. Shortly after they pulled it out, something sparked and caught the leaking gas on fire and it blew up.

Nick has severe 3rd degree burns on his full left arm and hand, his left torso, his lower right arm and hand, his ears and face. The doc is saying that his face should heal well but it’s very swollen and painful. He will need to have surgery on both arms and hands which is scheduled for Wednesday, September 24th. He is expected to be in the hospital for at least 2 weeks….but the road to recovery will be even longer.

Jake has severe burns on his arms, hands, stomach, and legs. He is scheduled for surgery today, September 22nd on his arm and stomach. If all goes well, hopefully he’ll get out of the hospital by the end of the week but the road to full recovery will be even longer.

Pat has severe 3rd degree burns on both his arms and chest. He will need surgery on his arms but it has not been scheduled at this time. The road to a full recovery will be long and painful.

This fundraiser was set up to help offset the medical costs. Many people have requested that an account be set up for these men so that is why this was set up. Please consider helping out Nick, Jake & Pat!. Their donation pages can be found here:
