ST. HELENA, CA (September 3) -- Doctors performed surgery on Randy Hannagan's broken right leg Monday afternoon, installing two titanium rods to support his tibia and fibula bones.

Hannagan, the 1995 Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series Rookie of the Year, suffered the injury during a second-lap crash early in Sunday's Harvest Classic championship race at Calistoga Speedway. Within a split-second after Stevie Smith and Craig Dollansky collided in turn one, Hannagan hit Dollansky and both cars flipped.

Hannagan was in good spirits following the surgery and even requested a meal from Outback Steakhouse. "The Hurricane" will remain in the hospital until Wednesday, then recuperate at his family's home in San Jose before returning to his race shop in Pittsboro, IN. The doctors estimate a four-to-six-week recovery period.

Hannagan ranks 14th in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series point standings, 15 points behind Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year candidate Jason Meyers. "The Hurricane" has qualified for 50 of the series' 52 main events, driving Terry Hannagan Racing's #1X K&C Drywall Eagle into the top 10 20 times, including five in the top five. He won the first "A" Feature of his career March 24th at I-55 Raceway. WoO
