A new update regarding the Canadian racer.

INDIANAPOLIS - Two days after crashing during Indy 500 practice, James Hinchcliffe is out of the ICU, but remains at IU Health Methodist Hospital. He will not require further surgery and has shown 'substantial improvement' already.

"We're very pleased with his progress and his condition continues to improve," said Dr. Timothy Pohlman, who performed the surgery. "Our expectation, in consultation with the IndyCar medical staff, is that a normal recovery is to be expected."

His replacement for this weekend's race will be named tomorrow morning and is expected to be Ryan Briscoe.
