Vasser was scheduled to run both Saturday and Sunday in the Gordon-owned Speed Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks series, but only made it through two laps in Saturday mornings practice because of a rough landing. Vasser said he did exactly the opposite of the instructions Gordon gave him before practice for the series in which trucks slide through the corners and jump ramps that make the trucks sail 50 feet through the air. "Robby told me to lift off a bit before the ramp, and then power up the ramp," Vasser said. "Apparently I didnt lift enough, and I powered more than I should have. I looked out the window and I was over the fence line and it was pretty cool -- until I landed and the whole truck hit the ground, and my back went crack, crack, crack." IndyCar orthopedic specialist Dr.dddddddddddd Terry Trammell sent the 1996 CART champion to a hospital for X-rays. Vasser said the X-rays looked fine at the hospital, but the pictures were sent back to the track for Trammell to give a second opinion. "I can barely sit. It hurts," Vasser said. "Were still waiting for Trammell to take a look at the X-rays, so I wasnt cleared to drive. But Im in no shape to drive." Vasser, who co-owns Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaans car, was using a soft padded stool to sit on while he called Kanaans race from the pit stand. He was replaced in the truck by former IndyCar driver Davey Hamilton. Vasser said he would like to try Gordons series again. "It was my first time, Ill do it again, as soon as I can," Vasser said. "It was totally my error. I think its a great series, the fans love it. They are very excited to watch the jumps and see the trucks slide around. I think Robbys got something with this series."
