Keselowski improves at Detroit-area hospital.

ROYAL OAK, MI (April 7, 2002) - The condition of veteran NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver and crew chief Bob Keselowski was listed in stable condition Monday morning at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI.

"The prognosis looks really good for Bob and he is improving rapidly every day," said Kay Keselowski, Bob's wife this morning. "Bob is alert, talking and wants to get out of bed. That alone shows he's already on his way back."

Keselowski was transported by ambulance to Crittenton Hospital in Rochester, MI last Wednesday afternoon after his K-Automotive team concluded a daylong test. His condition steadily improved over the weekend.

"I want to thank everyone for their heartfelt wishes and keeping us in their thoughts and prayers," stated Kay Keselowski. "We have had dozens of calls and e-mails from people in the NASCAR community asking what they can do to help. The response was overwhelming and I just want to let everyone know how much it means to us."

Neither Bob or Kay Keselowski will participate in the Truck Series race at Martinsville, VA this weekend. According to Keselowski, the No. 29 Power Stroke Diesel Ford and driver Terry Cook will still be one of the team's to beat.

"The team is not going to miss a beat," said Kay Keselowski. "Bob's brother, Ron, is stepping up as crew chief until Bob comes back. My good friend, Jason Pasch, Jack Sprague's spotter, will take over the spotting duties for me. Terry will be in good hands. The K-Automotive team has always run well at Martinsville and we expect to do it again this weekend."
