    To halt speculation fueled by an earlier thread, I've posted this one to put things in a proper tone.

    Gus Mallios was injured in a licensing accident at Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Okla. Mallios had previously competed in Super Comp and Pro Mod.

    While I'm not going to get into details, the car ran off the end of the track into the sand barrels positioned before the railroad imbankment. Mallios was lifeflighted due to serious injuries to his legs.

    Please keep Mallios, his family, the Conway Racing team and those that were on the scene in your prayers.

    We will report responsibly once the facts are gathered from this incident, but this is not the time nor place. Please keep posts limited to well wishes rather than speculation.

    Our prayers are with them all

    We're so sorry to hear about Gus. We know how badly he wanted to be in a fuel car and he had to be psyched to get into that A/F car. All our prayers go out to all involved, especially Gus, for total healing--mentally and physically.

    :(

    Daddy

    Hello everyone.
    I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their concerns. Gus is my dad..and is being very strong through all of this. He is doing as good as he can be doing for right now. They are still trying to save his right leg, but the chances are looking pretty good right now. We won't really know anything more about it until Wed. He will go in and have another surgery where they will evaluate his right leg. Please continue to keep my dad in your prayers and thoughts, as it is making him stronger knowing so many people are worried and concerned for him. I LOVE YOU DADDY!!! YOUR MY HERO :)

    Thinking about you

    I wish Gus and all his family all the love, support and prayers in the world. I know your pain...my son lost his right arm in an auto accident a year ago and I lost my boyfriend the same time in the same accident. Please tell Gus to call me or any of the family if I can be of any help. I've been thru the pain of my son losing a limb and maybe in some way i can be of some help to you all. Gus, we love you and are praying for you everyday. God bless you and your family. Your a strong man...you'll be ok, i promise....I know its hard to see thru all the mud right now...its was hard for us, but you're still here and theres a reason for that. Will Melton has my number if theres anything I can do. I'm so sorry, Gus. We love you!!

    We used to race with Gus when he ran the Pro Top Outlaws. He was a very "high energy" guy and great to have at the track. We send all our thoughts and support to the families involved and wish him a speedy recovery!

    I just wanted to give a huge thanks to everyone keeping my father and my family with them. I believe i can speak for my entire family when i say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will update on his condition only, but nothing of the accident itself.

    Thanks again everyone!

    Thanks for the updates, Glad to hear of better news than what was previously reported. It is unfortunate that even our local news stations were reporting that he did not survive the accident.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Gus and his family.
