Ten years ago was Jerry Nadeau's last weekend as a NASCAR driver
It was 10 years ago this race Jerry Nadeau suffered what turned out to be a career-ending head injury in a wreck during a Sprint Cup Series practice session at Richmond. Nadeau, then 32 years old, spent 22 days at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center before being transferred to the Charlotte Institute of Rehabilitation for further therapy.
He had one career victory to his credit (Atlanta, 2000) and would never race in NASCAR again. Nadeau currently lives in Davidson, N.C., with his wife and daughter.
