Tuesday, April 23, 2002 -- Red Bull Cheever Racing statement on condition of Tomas Scheckter followed by a statement from Scheckter.

Tomas Scheckter was released today from Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pa. in good condition. He returned to Indianapolis to recover from injuries sustained in an accident in the Firestone Indy 225 at Nazareth Speedway on Sunday.

"First of all I want to thank the Lazier Family for giving me a ride back to Indianapolis in their plane. It's unfortunate that we both ended up in the hospital. I hope Jaques has a quick recovery and is back in the car as soon as possible. This was a shock for me, but I am going to concentrate on getting better now. Once again the crew gave me an unbelievable car in the race. I look forward to getting back in shape and back in the racecar."
