Charlie Cathell

Here's an update on a story 47abc brought you last week about the owner of Delaware International Speedway being injured in an explosion.

The son of Charlie Cathell, Mark Cathell, says that Charlie will not have to receive skin grafting on areas that they were worried about.  Cathell says they brought home their father last night.

Mark thanked people for their prayers, thoughts and visits. Charlie Cathell was burned last Tuesday when an electric fuel pump used to transfer racing fuel caused a fire.

He was transported to Bay View Medical Center in Baltimore.
