The wreck happened at about noon at Thompson in a practice in preparation for a 30-lap SK Modified division feature later this afternoon.

Rocco, of Wallingford, was transported to Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam where he was being evaluated.

According to witnesses, Rocco cut a tire going into turn one on the .625-mile oval at Thompson and looped the car into the wall.

Rocco competes full-time in the SK Modified divisions at Thompson, Stafford Motor Speedway and the Waterford Speedbowl. He also competes full-time on the Whelen Modified Tour for Boehler Racing.

Rocco, who won his first Whelen All-American Series short track national championship in 2010, is currently second in the All-American Series national standings.
