Exclamation Update: Dillon Zimmerman crash at Speedworld

I spoke to Ty Zimmerman of Motoworks this morning regarding Dillon (Ty is the team manager & father of Pro-AM rider- Dilon Zimmerman


Bakersfield, Ca- 6/16/09: Dillon Zimmerman the #49 in WORCS ATV Pro-AM was involved in a horrible accident at Speedworld this past weekend at Rnd #4 of the ITP Quadcross series. Dillon pretty much suffered all major breaks to his right side of the upper body.

"Dillon had a bad one for sure. He broke all 9+ ribs, scapula, completely deflated & collapsed his lung and suffered major damage to his right kidney. He is still in ICU and here in Phoenix and we will know more later on his situation this week. He had some internal bleeding as well and they are trying to control that at this time with blood transfusions. He is short breathing, so they will be doing an epidermal which will freeze around the lung which will allow him to breathe more instead of taking these short breaths. Please keep my boy in your prayers as this is a difficult time for the family and team" Ty Zimmerman of Motoworks

Update on Dillon - on his way home

Released from Phoenix today (Monday, 6/22), on his way home. Full recovery ahead, no plans to return to Washington or Glen Helen. Possibly looking at final round- Mesquite. This is unofficial of course...

Dillon Zimmerman back on the Track

After winning the first three rounds of the 450 Production Expert class in the ITP Quadcross series, Dillon Zimmerman crashed at Round 4 June 16 and suffered pretty serious injuries, spending nearly a week in ICU.

He's apparently pretty tough ... Dillon surprised us all last weekend, competing for Team MotoWorks / Can-Am at the ITP Quadcross in Racetown 395.

He was obviously riding VERY carefully, but managed to moto around long enough to finish both Motos, even passing several riders. He logged a 14th for the weekend, good enough to hold on to 3rd place in points in the overall standings.

Hang in there Dillon, get 100% better and kick some ass at the last couple rounds. Carefully.
