NASCAR Busch Grand National Series driver and former Winston West competitor Jeff Krogh of Kamiah, Idaho, was seriously injured back on July 3rd at the Milwaukee Mile. Krogh was out for final practice when he hit hard into the Turn 1 retaining wall. Krogh was initially taken to the Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital where he was listed in serious but stable condition. With help from Davey Lee Liniger and Rick Carelli, Krogh was moved to the Craig Institute in Denver.
Krogh has come a long ways since his accident. He was scheduled to go home to Idaho on Dec 11th. It is reported they have removed the halo, but he is still in a neck brace. He will have to have some bone "shaved" from his back/neck bone that they saw on the Milwaukee xrays in Denver. His speech is good, he takes a little time to think before speaking and he is walking. He should regain full use of everything, including his mind.
