Tracy was injured in mid-April while training for the Champ Car race in Long Beach, California. He sustained a compression fracture in his spine after crashing into a concrete barricade and being thrown from his vehicle. He is making a solid comeback, though, following a six-week recuperation period.

The Grand Prix of Edmonton runs July 20-22 at Edmonton City Centre Airport. For more information about the three-day racing extravaganza, visit www.grandprixedmonton.com.
