Several media sources are saying IPS driver Pablo Perez has now been moved to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Perez has been placed under the care of Dr. Kevin Scheid, the Indy Racing League's orthopedic consultant, and by my count of news stories has now undergone three or four reported surgeries.

Reports have him slated for "additional reconstructive procedures" before beginning rehabilition with no specific timetable for recovery. Read into that what you may.

If you have not seen the crash, it's here. It's truly a testament to the safety of everything from car design to HANS devices that Perez is even alive.

If you would like to send cards or notes they can be passed on via email to, or otherwise to:
Target Chip Ganassi Racing
7777 Woodland Dr.
Indianapolis, IN 46278

The site has a special page for wishes as well - here. It's really awe inspiring to see all the encouragement from so many people - many of whom you might notice as his fellow competitors - for a guy who was competing in his first Indy Racing League event.
