Driver Hospitalized Following Crash at Wiscasset Speedway

“A Pro Stock driver was LifeFlighted to Maine Medical Center in Portland following a crash at the Wiscasset Speedway on Sunday, Sept. 4, 2022 according to a post on the Wiscasset Speedway LLC Facebook page.

Pro Stock driver Ryan Deane, of Bangor, was transported to the hospital after suffering burns and smoke inhalation in a crash during the last chance qualifier race for the Boss Hogg 150. According to a post on the speedway’s Facebook page Tuesday, Sept. 6, Dean has been released from the hospital and is “recuperating at home with family”.

Speedway owner Vanessa Jordan said three cars were involved in the crash. Drivers Miller Buzzell and Logan Melcher were also involved in the crash, but neither were injured. Jordan said none of the drivers bear any fault for the crash and she is not expecting the speedway to issue any punishments.

“It was just a racing incident,” she said.

Wiscasset Fire Department responded to a call to clear the area for LifeFlight. A landing zone was cleared in a field on the intersection of West Alna Rd and Fowle Hill Rd just south of the speedway.”
