BRISTOL, Tenn. (WJHL) – Former NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Eric McClure is hospitalized in Bristol recovering from what he says are multiple health issues.

He posted on Facebook Sunday, saying he is being treated for a lung infection, an illness that kills muscles and full kidney failure.

According to the post, McClure is on dialysis for the foreseeable future and will have to relearn how to walk and use his arms.

He says, “I’m not out of the woods yet, but slowly seeing improvement in one area. And I’ll say I have learned to never again take little everyday things for granted.”
