Monticello Raceway has released an update on the status of driver Jim Marohn, Jr., who will miss a good portion of time after being injured in a racing accident during the Wednesday, January 13 qualifying session at the 'Mighty M.'

According to the Monticello release, Marohn sustained a broken collarbone and will be out of action for roughly eight weeks.

The driver was treated and released from the local hospital, and, according to his father, Jim, Sr., the pilot is resting well at his girlfriend’s home in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

Marohn’s 177 winning drives at Monticello in 2009 ranked him seventh on the local leaderboard. He also copped the dash-win title at Tioga Downs last summer. In all during the 2009 campaign, the 27-year-old driver reached the winner's circle 257 times.

Marohn was off to a good start at Monticello again this season. He had already recorded seven wins at the track over the course of the first six programs.

The release ends with a quote from Jim, Sr., who said, “He’s shooting to return to action for the St. Paddy Pace (in mid-March) at Monticello. He won the race last year and wants to be back to defend his title.”
