TULSA, OK -- A former developmental driver for Richard Childress Racing is recovering in a Tulsa hospital following a spectacular crash during a Chili Bowl race Wednesday night.

Tim McCreadie, 34, was injured when the rear axle snapped in his midget car, causing it to flip over a fence.

The race was part of the qualifier race at Expo Square at the Tulsa County Fairgrounds.

McCreadie was a developmental driver for RCR in 2007.   At the time of the accident, McCreadie was driving the No. 11W Wilke-Pak Spite Toyota. 

Chili Bowl officials say McCreadie suffered a fracture in his T-3 vertebrae.  He was scheduled to have an MRI on Thursday.

USAC officials and Chili Bowl promoters have set up an account to help with McCreadie's medical bills. Donations should be made payable to: USAC c/o Tim McCreadie Support Fund, USAC, 4910 West 16th St., Speedway, Ind., 46224.
