Dale Creasy Jr. Recovering from Surgery - Will spend another 7-10 days at Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton



EDMONTON, AB (July 8, 2008) – After five hours of successful surgery to repair the severe leg injury suffered Sunday at the Rocky Mountain Nationals in Edmonton, two-time defending IHRA Nitro Funny Car World Champion Dale Creasy Jr. is recovering at Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. Creasy’s lower left leg was severely injured during his semifinal match-up when his transmission failed.

“The transmission was spinning,” Creasy said. “Something broke and it locked up. There was nothing I could do.”

The doctors at Royal Alexandra spent five hours piecing Creasy’s lower left leg back together. The surgery was successful and Creasy will have a lengthy rehabilitation ahead of him. After the surgery he was able to move all his toes, which is a good sign.

“It was a five hour surgery, now they’re waiting for the swelling to go down,” he said. “They said it would be six months before I was able to walk again. I’m going to be here for another week to 10 days because they put a lot of pins and rods in and they want to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t get infected.”

Cards and greetings can be sent to Creasy at this address:

Glad to hear he's on the mend. It was a scary time seeing the Stars helicopter showing up to take him away.
