John Force Racing sent out a press release to the media on Friday with an update to Robert Hight’s condition. However, it is a bit odd that JFR sent this out following Hight making a pass in the first round at the 33rd annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas.

Hight qualified ninth following the first pass near Dallas, Texas. He went 4.611 at 183.02 mph.

Following that session, JFR, after being pressed by a fellow writer, said that Hight underwent surgery last Wednesday, September 26th. That same day, he made a social media post saying that he was able make it back to his team after being involved in a scary explosion at AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois.

According to his team, Hight had surgery on his left clavicle open reduction and internal fixation. He was then seen on Thursday, October 4th, 2018 at the George Hatch of Keck Medical Center of USC’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

During that examination on his left shoulder and clavicle, he was released to ‘unrestricted activities.’ As of that appointment, he has been cleared to race again.

Hight, the points leader, will race the rest of the weekend.

This was actually the first note by the team — almost two weeks later — after Hight was involved in the crash. He actually won the race over Tim Wilkerson despite crashing into the wall.
