03/25/07 Pablo Perez was in stable condition Sunday after surgery to remove shrapnel from his legs following an accident in the season-opening Indy Pro Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Car owner Chip Ganassi said Perez is scheduled for more surgery on Monday and doctors hope to transfer him to a hospital in Indianapolis as soon as possible. He was awakened Sunday by doctors who asked Perez to wiggle his toes, and the driver responded.

"He's made tremendous progress," Ganassi said from the NASCAR race at Bristol Motor Speedway. "From where we were 24 hours ago, he's doing remarkably well."

Perez, driving his first race for Target Chip Ganassi Racing, is being treated at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

He was injured when he and Sean Guthrie touched wheels, igniting a five-car crash. The impact sent Guthrie's car hurtling into the energy-absorbing SAFER Barrier and Perez's car into the catch-fencing.  Gainesville.com
