Heard ‘bout this just prior to going south, as this seems like not only a terrible blow for the Hmiel’s – MOST notably Shane... But also the Terre Haute Action Track, which is under the Stewardship of DHK Promotions: A joint venture between Brian Dorsett, Davey Hamilton and Mike King. (Who are trying to revive the track back to profitability and keep its Doors open for Motor Racing events...) As I certainly DON’T think it’s their fault or the track’s. As it just sounds like a very FREAKY racing accident that has caused Shane Hmiel to be placed in a medically induced Coma to combat his brain swelling – SHIT! As I really enjoyed the interview Messer Shane did with Don Kay earlier this year on Autosport Radio.
As obviously – hopefully he’ll recover from this frightening incident quickly; as I still do NOT understand how his USAC Silver Crown Sprint Car’s Roll cage could be completely torn off; SHEISA! So get BETTER soon Shane!

UPDATEAccording to Don Kay: Shane has successfully undergone both neck and back surgeries – as both were broken and has NO discernable brain injuries!
