He has broken his neck in 3 places beginning with C1. He is in intensive care and cannot receive calls but would love to get a card or letter from any of us. One of the nicest guys in the club, Boobie has always driven the farthest and always was there to help anyone.

Unhappy Re: Vinatge team member hurt!

I found out about this from Howard on Tuesday night. It was relayed from another of our vintage race friends and I had hoped the situation was not as serious as we had first heard. I have been in shock ever since.

Unfortunately, it is. For those of you who are not familiar with the anatomy of the spine, the C1 vertebra is the one closest to the brain. A spinal injury at that position is usually fatal at the time of injury. That Boobie has survived is very much against the odds. By all measures, his life will be very different from this point forward. Please pray for him.

Boobie is one of the good guys. He is a crazy Cajun Coon *** who would pass you and yell at you to speed up and come race. He is somewhat like Travis Pastrana in that he didn't really have a built-in limiter when it came to taking risks. He was almost always the one that was the first to jump the difficult jumps. Evidently this is what happened to him as he was supposedly trying to jump a triple on his 81 Maico 490 and came up short.

Please keep him in you thoughts and please think about the consequences of your actions when you ride. It can all change in a split second.

Oh man, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. I can't even imagine what you as his friends and any of his family must be experiencing as well. I will also remember to pray for him tonight.

Dave, still remember meeting him last year when I was at Splendora watching you and Big M race. I thought he was a great guy and it really shocked me to hear this about him. I can still hear Howard yelling out "BOOBIE!!" I thought someone was streaking!

Unfortunatly I am all too familar with the spine and that is why I asked the previous question that I did. I am deeply sadened by this whole ordeal, more then any of you probably realize.

Default Update

I got this update from one of our Vintage club members, Who posted it on Houstonmotocross.com

I spoke to Vicki, Boobie's wife a little bit ago and she gave me an update on him. He is still in ICU and having a better day today. There is no paralysis...thank GOD. They took him off of the ventilator also and put a trach tube and a feeding tube in. As if the broken neck wasn't bad enough he had a minor stroke which has got his swallowing and one arm messed up.They are hoping for a 100% recovery....with time.
From what Vicki was able to tell me...he was practicing in Gonzales for a race the next day and was in a set of doubles...made the first set and hit the face of the second set...going over the bars and landing on his head. Please continue to keep Boobie and his family in your prayers.

Satch:

Thanks, Boobie is a fighter & the fittest guy I know & twice as tough as nails!
he will do every thing in his power to get back to 100%

I need to talk to Mike Berg about doing something with the GMB fund to help pay the Hospital bills.

I interdused (sp) Mike to Boobie at the Houston SX last year & Boobie was running a Motoman 393 sticker on his Maico when he got hurt.
