Bruce and Teresa Rogers, owners of the Grandview Speedway (PA), were involved in a serious auto accident in Daytona Beach, Florida about two weeks ago. According to a press release sent by the track’s public relations director Ernie Saxton, the two are on the road to recovery.
According to a report by The Mercury, the Rogers’ were travelling on Nova Road in Daytona Beach around 7:30 p.m. on January 25. As they were turning off Nova onto a side street, their vehicle was hit by another car.
Teresa is in a rehabilitation facility while Bruce is in the ICU at the Florida Hospital in Daytona Beach, Florida.
“Theresa is undergoing rehab for cracked ribs, and she will recover,” Saxton told The Mercury. “Bruce is in the ICU (intensive care unit) with a touch of pneumonia. He had to undergo a tracheotomy and is looking at a prolonged road to recovery.”
For the fifth time since they took over as promoters of the race track, the Rogers’ were voted Promoters of the Year in the Eastern Region following the completion of the 2014 season.
Racing will continue at the Pennsylvania facility as planned during the 2016 season with son Kenny and daughter Tina overseeing the business.
Cards and letters will reach Bruce and Teresa Rogers at 173 Bear Foot Trail, Ormond Beach, Florida 32174. The Rogers family appreciate the good wishes along with the many cards that have been received.
