Meanwhile, the news is much better for Ricky Craven, who was involved in this melee in yesterday's Winston Select 500.
Craven was moved from intensive care to a normal room at the Carraway County medical center last night.
A hospital spokeswoman told me this afternoon that he is scheduled to undergo one more test this afternoon, and that there is a good chance he will be released tonight, with nothing more than bumps, bruises and a few scratches.
