Northfield, OH --- Jason Thompson has not driven at Northfield Park since a skiing accident on Sunday (March 2).

“Wyatt (Irvine) and I decided to go skiing. I am not a good skier and the slopes were icy,” explained Thompson. “I should not have been out there with the icy conditions, but went anyway. I was going really fast, hit a hole and the result was not good.”

Thompson broke both his tibia and fibula in his left leg. He is currently in Metro Health Center in Cleveland, Ohio, following a surgical procedure placing screws and plates, which will help to mend his broken bones.

Thompson has indicated that he could be sidelined for up to three months.

“In the meantime, I have some ski equipment for sale,” Thompson chuckled.
