CLERMONT, Ind. --

Adam Hiller
David Powers Motorsports is accepting donations for fallen crew member Adam Hiller. Hiller was seriously injured in a pit accident Thursday during tech inspections for the 53rd annual U.S. Nationals at O'Reilly Raceway Park.

Donations for the Adam Hiller Recovery Fund are being accepted at the David Powers Motorsports hospitality area between the Matco Tools and MacAllister CAT teams. The Harley-Davidson display in the Manufacturer's Midway also is collecting donations to help offset the rising medical costs.

Hiller, 29, from Lincoln, Neb., is in his first season as a crew member on the NHRA team. He joined the Matco Tools team last winter. The former Wyotech student services superchargers on Whit Bazemore's Matco Tools dragster and currently resides in Brownsburg, Ind. Hiller is scheduled to be released from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis on Saturday.

"It's going to take more than facial reconstruction surgery to keep me away from drag racing," Hiller joked from Methodist Hospital.

Matco Tools kicked off the recovery efforts with a $1,000 donation and NHRA fans at the U.S. Nationals have flocked to both locations to aid in the recover effort. For every dollar raised, Powers has committed to match that amount.

"Adam (Hiller) is a terrific kid and we'll do everything we can to help in his recovery process," Powers said. "He is a very important part of our race team and we want to ensure he makes a full recovery and he'll be welcomed back to the team with open arms. The outpouring of donations and support from the NHRA community and fans has been overwhelming and we thank everyone for their support."
