Injured driver Mingay has surgery for facial injuries
DETROIT (AP) Australian driver Matt Mingay is still in serious but stable condition Sunday after having surgery for facial injuries.
Mingay crashed during a trucks race at Belle Isle on Saturday. His family says he had surgery Saturday night, according to a statement from the Stadium Super Truck Series. Mingay remains at Detroit Receiving Hospital.
Mingay's truck overturned during the third lap of the race, which was eventually suspended after a long delay. There's another SST race scheduled for Sunday.
The SST circuit features high-horsepower trucks designed to take flight off jumps. Races feature ramps set up throughout the course, and trucks can be launched 20 feet in the air, covering more than 150 feet.
