Ron Overman medical update from accident at Cajon Speedway in El Cajon, California during the Late Model Sportsman feature main event on Saturday, April 20, 2002.

Prior to the main event, Overman from Lakeside, California had posted the fastest time in qualifying heats.

Statement from Cajon Speedway:

Great news about Ron Overman. He was in a great deal of pain when he arrived at Sharp Hospital. But doctors could find no broken bones or any major cause for concern. They did keep him overnight for observation. His crew and family went home so he could rest.

They report that Ron was in very positive spirits and was laughing and joking (but what else would anyone expect from Ronnie). He is already talking about getting his new car ready. His crew also indicated that when he first made contact with the crashwall on the backstretch, a bar in the car broke and caused his throttle to hang wide open.

UPDATE:
4:30 pm Sunday 04/21/02. Ron Overman was released from the hospital earlier today.
