HOUSTON - Eddie Hill Condition Updated
By Larry Sullivan





BAYTOWN, Texas - Eddie Hill, driver of the Pennzoil Top Fuel dragster, was injured in a high-speed accident during qualifying for the 3rd annual Matco Tools SuperNationals presented by Racing Champions. Hill's engine disintegrated as he completed a qualifying run timed at 4.605 seconds and 297.88 mph. Hill was transported to a local hospital where X-rays showed a compression fracture of the lower lumbar.

Hill remained in the hospital for further medical checks, including a CAT-scan of the back injury. Meanwhile, his team is making arrangements to rebuild the car damaged at the Texas Motorplex last Sunday in a similar accident so Hill can compete in the final event of the season, the Winston Finals at Pomona, Calif., in two weeks.

We will update Hill's condition and future plans as soon as reliable information is available.
