    Default Josh's 750 SB Crash Update

    Just got back from Harborview, as you know Josh wen't down in the back straight just after the hill towards Turn 5. He says he remembers doing a wheelie on the gas over the hill and it coming all the way up and over.

    Josh had a significant break in his femur as well as dislocation. They had to drug him up pretty good to set back what they could so we didn't really get to talk to him much as he was out of it. He was scheduled to go into surgery after we left to finish up, and will probably get some hardware in his leg. They said he was stable and it was pretty much just his leg that was injured from what they found so far. They also said he would be a "guest" at Harborview for at least 3 to 4 days. We didn't get much more info than that, and me and Troy were advised to go home and get some sleep as it would be a while before he would be in and out of surgery and up and at em after that. Troy will be stopping by tomorrow to check in and get more info, and I'll let you know what we hear after that.

    Again - the race day staff was amazing and thanks a million for everyone's help in getting the bike and gear back to the pits. We appreciate everyones hard work and kind words, they really mean alot, and i'm sure Josh feels the same way, and even said it himself before he got on the Chopper. I'm sure when he's able he will be on here filling everyone in on the complete story....and then some ;-)

    Thanks again, and Troy or myself will post again when we get more info.

    Josh is a really nice guy and I hated hearing that this happened to him. Best wishes to him for a speedy recovery.

    Default out of surgery

    Josh's is out of surgery, and awake, but still can't talk due to the breathing tube still in. Everything went pretty well, and he has some pins and plates in his leg now. He isn't expected to walk for about a month or so, so he may be doing his next wheelies from the wheelchair. They also found some broken ribs, and may have some pnemonia. The breathing tube is supposed to come out today, and they say he is welcome to have visitors anytime, but if it's later in the evening, you just have to check in with security. He might also be moving to a different location for a couple days of recovery.

    If anyone is interested in visiting - you can just call Harborview and ask for information on Josh Nguyen, and they can direct you.

    Thanks again for the support, looks like he's on his way.
