Meira to attend Watkins Glen event

Indy car driver Vitor Meira will attend his first IndyCar Series race this weekend since sustaining two broken lower vertebrae in his terrifying accident in the Indianapolis 500 in May. Meira arrives at Watkins Glen (NY) International Friday afternoon.

"The reason I want to go to Watkins Glen is first of all to be with the team, with ABC Supply and A.J. Foyt Racing," said Meira in a telephone interview from his home in Key Biscayne, Fla. earlier today. "They've been giving me a lot of support since the accident and most of all, they're all my friends and I want to be with them. Second of all, to be at the race track, that's where I always want to be and that's where I love to be. I don't want to be at home if I can be at the race track. If I have to choose, I'm definitely going to be at the race track."
