Chad McQueen Resting in Daytona Beach Following Successful Surgery on Saturday Night

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 9, 2006) -- No. 73 Tafel Racing Porsche GT3 driver Chad McQueen is resting at a Daytona Beach-area hospital after successful surgery on Saturday evening for injuries he sustained in a crash during Saturday's morning session of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Special Reserve Daytona Test Days.

The 45-year-old McQueen suffered a broken lower left leg, as well as a pair of fractures to his vertebrae and multiple rib fractures after making contact with the barrier exiting the chicane at the end of the Daytona International Speedway Superstretch. McQueen is listed in serious but stable condition, and a full recovery is expected.

"Though we're very upset about this situation, we're eternally grateful that Chad will make a full recovery," said Tafel Racing owner Jim Tafel. "The McQueen family and I especially want to thank Brumos Racing team owner Bob Snodgrass, Bill France Jr., and the Grand American Road Racing Association for their assistance and support following the incident."

Snodgrass, a long-time McQueen friend, and principal behind Brumos Racing and Brumos Motor Cars, arranged transportation for the McQueen family upon their arrival in Daytona Beach, where ISC Guest Services ensured that the McQueens had extended accommodations. Grand American was also instrumental in providing support for the family throughout the weekend.
