Jones Remains In Wishard Health Services During His Recovery

INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 7, 2008) -- Injured de Ferran Motorsports crew member Keith Jones' condition has been downgraded from serious to fair, as the Greenwood, Ind., racing veteran continues to make good progress at Wishard Health Services, according the Fairbanks Burn Center doctors.

Jones will currently continue his recovery at the Indianapolis medical facility.

Jones was critically injured in a pit incident in the American Le Mans Series race on July 19 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Jones has been a veteran crew member of the ALMS and IndyCar Series for over ten years including stints at Panther Racing, Andretti Green Racing and de Ferran Motorsports.

Many American Le Mans Series and IndyCar Series teams will be supporting Jones' recovery effort this weekend by donning "Get Well Jonesie" stickers during the American Le Mans Series race at Road America and IndyCar Series race at Kentucky Speedway.

A special fund has been established to assist Jones in his recovery process.

The Keith E. Jones Fund was established last week at National City Bank. Contributions to the fund can be made at any National City Bank. Donations and best wishes also can be sent to the de Ferran Motorsports headquarters. The address is listed below.
