The 2005 Stars of Karting ICA National Champion, Phil Giebler, crashed this morning at Indianapolis while practicing for the Indy 500. He is currently hospitalized with bruised lungs and will remain at Methodist Hospital overnight for observation. Giebler followed up his 2005 ICA National Championship with a ICC Eastern Division Championship in the 2006 Stars of Karting series. He was named “Rookie of the Year” in his Indianapolis 500 debut last season. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in the car soon.

**Updated**
Phil has been released from Methodist hospital and is doing okay. Unfortunately, due to a cervical sprain, Giebler will not start this year’s Indianapolis 500.
