David Watson, seven-time AMA Hillclimb Champion, injured on Sept. 24 at the Jefferson Penn., AMA Hillclimb Championship event is showing signs of improvement and has been transferred to a hospital closer to his home according to family friend, Lorie DeBusk.

“Dave was transferred by air ambulance to Wishard Memorial Hospital in Indianapolis and is showing slow but steady progress with his recovery,” said DeBusk speaking on behalf of the Watson family. “Dave is beginning to open his eyes and has better movement, still mostly on his left side.”

DeBusk also provided an updated address for anyone wishing to send cards and letters to David:
