HOUSTON - Eddie Hill Condition Updated
By Larry Sullivan
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 a
t 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 f
inal 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.
