    Sounds very grim, and lot of hearsay on FB, but that was the only media information I can find on him. Obviously pray he makes it.

    UPDATE: I just spoke with Jim McGee's wife, Monte. Jim's overall condition remains mostly unchanged. #IndyCar's winningest team manager/crew chief fell outside his winter home; severe right leg fracture. There have been post-op complications. Please join me in continued prayers.
    I'd rather have 10% of the world interested in the ICS than 50% of US that NASCAR currently has

    I interviewed with him for a job. He showed remarkable competence and turned me down.

    UPDATE 2: Positive news today from Jim McGee's wife, Monte. Jim showed improvement overnight. Doctors are encouraged and could move Jim out of ICU soon. I respectfully ask you to continue praying for #IndyCar's all-time winningest team manager/crew chief as many challenges await.

    JIM McGEE UPDATE: @IndyCar's winningest team manager/chief mechanic continues to improve, says son Ron. Jim has been moved to rehab center. For newer fans, Jim was protege of legendary Clint Brawner and won #Indy500 with @MarioAndretti @emmofittipaldi Rick Mears, Gordy Johncock.
    Sounds good.
