Chad McQueen – Full Recovery Expected
We were reluctant to write anything about Chad McQueen’s accident at Daytona on Saturday, until the picture became clearer.

dailysportscar.comThe good news received late on Monday was that McQueen is expected to make a full recovery.

Driving the #73 Tafel Racing Porsche, he hit the barrier exiting the chicane on the back stretch, some reports suggesting that the car then rolled.

He suffered a broken lower left leg, a pair of fractures to his vertebrae and multiple rib fractures, and is in a serious, but stable condition, in a Daytona Beach hospital. He underwent surgery on Saturday evening.

“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.”
