Tim’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about on Tim's condition.

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.

Tim is the promoter for North Central Speedway (NCS) in Brainerd, MN. He and wife Tracey live in East Gull Lake with children, Andrew, Madison & Michael.

Tim was seriously injured late Wednesday night, June 16th when an out of control race car crashed into a pit exit area at the edge of the track at NCS where he was standing. 

Tim was airlifted to North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale with head injuries. He is currently in Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul where he is undergoing therapy. We will keep this page updated as often as possible to please check back for further information.

Latest Journal Update


Wow, I just spent nearly six hours re-reading all the great comments and well wishes in my Caring Bridge "Guestbook"....I could never begin to say thanks enough to all of you for thinking and praying for me (and Keith Nelson) during such a tough time.

Hard to imagine that it has been nearly three years since the night of the crash at North Central Speedway. While I have been able to somewhat return to a relatively active life, I still battle with constant head aches, memory issues, and dizziness.

I have been fortunate enough to return to my umpire duties on a limited basis, and often use my head injury excuse for any bad calls I make during the games. :)

This won't turn into a long and boring letter of how I have recovered. I, from time to time, go back and read all these great posts. Making me want to tell you all once again that your kindness and prayers are more appreciated than could ever be told...Thank you all for everything!

I am still amazed at just how many people took the time to wish me and my family the best. Everything from race tracks around the country, to people I went to high school with, the race families, the softball teams, the co-workers, extended family members,  and the many people I had never met that just wanted to pass kind words along.

As I have stated in the past, hug and smile your way through each and every day. Hard times can (and certainly do) happen to all of us at any time.

God bless all of you and thank you from the bottom of my heart. It's pretty obvious that the prayers do indeed work.
