Jayme Lautigar of Superior was describing the severe burns he suffered to his leg in a shop accident this spring when the conversation turned to Jeff Massingill, another dirt track driver set back by injury.


"Jeff got a lot more than what I got," Lautigar said. "He was in really, really tough shape."

Massingill nearly died in a car accident after he fell asleep at the wheel, but the 22-year-old from Keewatin survived and is looking forward to returning to racing.
