Driver Richie Silverman is in stable condition, but remains in the intensive care unit at Hackensack University Medical Center with a concussion and ankle fractures he sustained in a racing accident Friday night at Meadowlands Racetrack. His father, trainer Jerry Silverman, also reported that the results of Richie's CT-scans were negative.

Silverman, 45, was one of six drivers unseated in a chain reaction set in motion when Four Starzz Lefty fell to the ground with driver George Brennan in Friday's second race. Daniel Dube, Brian Sears, Ron Pierce and Eric Goodell were also tossed from their sulkies in the spill. Silverman's sense of humor remained in tact as he joked to Meadowlands racing analyst Bob Heyden on Saturday afternoon, "I had 10 drives scheduled tonight. I hate to miss out on them."

Dube, 41, fractured vertebrae in his lower back and a carpal bone in his right hand. He also received stitches in his left elbow and knees. Dube expected to be released from the hospital Saturday evening.

"I can't move much," Dube said. "I don't remember anything about the accident."

Following negative x-rays, Sears and Pierce resumed driving in baby races Saturday morning at the Meadowlands before heading to Canada to drive in the eliminations for the North America Cup at Mohawk Racetrack. George Brennan and Eric Goodell are scheduled to drive the Saturday card at the Meadowlands.
