Jay Frye, general manager of MB2/MBV racing teams, which include driver Jerry Nadeau, talked about the injuries to his driver and his prognosis. Nadeau suffered severe injuries in a crash May 2 at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway and remains in a Richmond hospital. Recently invoked privacy laws have made it difficult to get information on Nadeau, but Frye cleared up several conflicting reports on his condition and recovery.

Q: What are Jerry's injuries?

A: '' Jerry suffered head, lung and rib injuries. He also has a fractured left scapula. Jerry is currently semi-conscious and has not yet been able to communicate verbally. He is responsive and is able to process information. A rehabilitation program has begun, and the doctors continue to be encouraged with Jerry's progress, although there is no timetable for his full recovery."
