Only a day after having a brain tumor surgically removed, Matt Tifft, Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR XFINITY driver, tweeted a video.
In the video, Tifft chuckles while saying his head feels like someone drilled a hole in it, and it is painful, but the surgery went well.
During the Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway, Tifft was scheduled to drive No. 18. However, it was announced earlier in the week that Tifft, age 20, would be unable to start since he would be undergoing surgery in order to remove a low-grade glioma in his brain.
Instead, David Ragan was the driver for the No.18, taking it to the pole and keeping Tifft’s name over the door. Ragan placed 21st.
Tifft has expressed his eagerness, both pre and post-surgery, to be back behind the wheel with a “perfect health” diagnosis very soon.
