JON FIELD RELEASED FROM SEBRING HOSPITAL

Intersport Racing's Jon Field was released from a Sebring, Fla., hospital Monday night, hours after a horrific crash during testing for this weekend's opening round of the 2010 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron.

Field, testing for the 58th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida, was taken to Highlands Regional Medical Center following an accident in which his AER-powered Lola B06/10 LMP1 race car got airborne and flipped several times between Turns 9 and 10 of the 3.7-mile, 17-turn Sebring International Raceway circuit.

The car eventually came to a stop upright on its wheels. After being taken to the track's medical center, he was transported to Highlands Regional for further observation.

Prior to the crash, the Intersport Lola-AER had posted the fastest time of the afternoon session.
