ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) - Sports car racer Mark Pombo has been hospitalized with a concussion, broken clavicle and broken nose after crashing at Road America on Friday morning.
A series spokesman said Pombo was in stable condition in the intensive care unit at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee and will remain there overnight. Pombo was conscious when he was transported to the hospital.
Pombo was practicing for the Continental Tire Series race at the track, a four-mile road course in central Wisconsin that also is hosting the NASCAR Nationwide Series this weekend.
