    Default Mike Tobin Update

    Yesterday Mike Tobin was involved in a crash at Pacific Raceways. He was injured pretty badly. The major injury involved a fracture of the T1 vertabrae, essentially a broken back. Luckily he has feeling and movement in all of his limbs and as of now there appears to be NO spinal cord injury.

    I spoke with Laura, Mike's wife, and he is doing ok and will be getting surgery today or tomorrow to stabilize the T1.

    Laura is requesting NO VISITORS and NO CALLS until after the surgery. I'll keep everyone updated via this thread on Mike's progress. Please respect this, I know how hard it is, but this is best for Laura at this time!

    If you have any questions or would like to send your well wishes please send them to me at lukeonf4@hotmail.com or can call me at (206) 619-7981!
