Segal and co-driver Emil Assentato are currently the hottest team in the Rolex Series GT class, winning two of the past three races. Assentato started last for the Utah 250 due to an engine change. Segal took a mammoth lead when he stayed out under a caution, only to have it erased when his teammate was assisted into a gravel trap. Segal pitted, came out at the end of the line, and worked his way through the field to take the checkered flag.

Wilden was in a new role at Miller Motorsports Park, qualifying the No. 59 Rehagen Racing Ford Mustang GT co-driven by Dean Martin. The pair finished fifth in the Salt Lake City 200. Wilden leads the Grand Sport championship by 18 points, and is in position to win the title with a 14th place finish in the Oct. 4 season finale at Virginia International Raceway. The pair have two victories this season, at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Mid-Ohio.

Workman will be making his first KONI start of the season, co-driving the No. 2 US Army Ford Mustang GT with Scott Turner and Mark Ackley. Now fully recovered from injuries suffered while working as a non-driving instructor at Palm Beach International, he will be racing for the first time since last year's event at VIR. Workman remains the first and only American to win a European Formula Ford 2000 championship, in 1999 with Team Valvoline.

Unbelievable !!!
The Trach was down-sized and capped today - Jason is talking and making jokes, asking 100 questions and eating real food. He is amazing !!!

One day later than I thought - but it happened earlier than the medical team expected. Jason was moved from ICU Trauma to 'Step Down' today. No more ventilator - only a little oxygen. The Trach will be capped soon and removed as soon as they are sure he can cough and swallow correctly - and he is doing that already. He is in a private room, totally awake, aware, more >>
Jason was off the ventilator all day and probably will be all night...
The gastric problem is slowly resolving - hopefully by tomorrow they can remove the gastric nose tube. I have a feeling he might move to the 'step down' unit tomorrow or Tuesday. Please keep praying.

Jason's status remains same as yesterday.
He did motion today, asking if he can still drive and I assured him that he would be all well and whole again. After he kept asking about all the hoses, etc., I offered him a mirror. He very quickly agreed, looked at himself and the Trach for quite some time and seemed to be at ease with the situation. more >>
Jason had an even bigger day.
5 hours off the ventilator and some bed-side rehab. No complaints of pain, just very weak and still some withdrawals (hallucinations) - but stronger and recuperating quicker than the docs and nurses expected. Now his hardest part of the healing process begins - but I can already s more >>
Another good day ...  Go on Jason!
The ventilator settings were turned down another little bit - Jason tolerated it well. He is awake part of the day and smiling at the nurses occassionally (never at me). He is showing signs of withdrawal and handling them with complete calmness. I am SO proud of him. Looking at his blue more >>
Another Special Sunday
Jason was awake during most of the 4 visitation hours. He tried to communicate since he can't speak due to the ventilator. He is moving hands, arms and legs and even lifted his head off the pillow. His stepmom Wanda and I will make some flash cards with words and phrase more >>
Today was Jason's last day on sedation medication
