Chili Bowl Nationals -- Tim McCreadie Update

TULSA, Okla. (January 15, 2009) -- After riding out one of the most spectacular flips in Chili Bowl Nationals history, New York's Tim McCreadie is recuperating from injuries at a Tulsa-area hospital.

McCreadie suffered a fractured T-3 vertebra and has floating fragments after the incident that occurred while leading Wednesday night's first qualifying race. Noted specialist Dr. Terry Trammel was scheduled to consult with the local specialist on Thursday afternoon.

The 2007 Chili Bowl Nationals winner and World of Outlaws Late Model champion has already been fitted for a back and neck brace and will face substantial medical and recovery expenses in the coming months without the benefit of health insurance.

Currently, Kevin Miller, Jason Smith and James Spink at USAC, with the appreciation and support of Chili Bowl promoters Emmett Hahn and Lanny Edwards, have offered to help manage the many offers from the racing community to assist with McCreadie's expenses.

Donations should be made payable to:
USAC c/o Tim McCreadie Support Fund
USAC
4910 West 16th Street
Speedway, Indiana 46224
