Jason Thompson has not driven at Northfield Park since a skiing accident on Sunday. 

“Wyatt (Irvine) and I decided to so skiing.  I am not a good skier and the slopes were icy,” explained Thompson.  “I should not have been out there with the icy conditions, but went anyway.  I was going really fast, hit a hole and the result was not good.”

Thompson broke both his tibia and fibula in his left leg.  He is currently in Metro Health Center in Cleveland, Ohio following a surgical procedure placing screws and plates, which will help to mend his broken bones.

Thompson has indicated that he could be sidelined for up to three months.  “In the mean time, I have some ski equipment for sale,” Thompson chuckled.
