Roger Newton update


UPDATE: Not good news here... Roger Newton has taken a turn for the worse. As many of you know, Roger's been in bad shape since having a heart attack recently. Updates to follow...

Roger Newton, former Ken Muscatel Freei crew chief, R/C model builder and Hydroplane Raceboat Museum volunteer and current prop man on the U-48/U-50 team suffered a heart attack after the Columbia Cup in Kennewick, Washington race and was hospitalized in Seattle.

His quadruple bypass seemed to go well last week, however there had been complication since. He had been put on artificial heart devices to try to get him through the weekend and determine whether a heart transplant was necessary.
Our thoughts and prayers go out for Roger and his family.
