After talking to Bobby Varin Thursday, I went scrambling for a copy of Gray’s Anatomy.

Varin took a wild ride in Pete Dmitraszek’s sprint car Saturday night at Canandaigua Speedway, and did significant damage to his knee.

“I knew when I got into the air, it was going to be a bad one,” said Varin. “The car is trash. I broke the frame in about six different spots.”

The damage to Varin’s leg

included a fracture of the fibular condyle, a torn patellar tendon and a torn meniscus. He’ll be on crutches for three weeks. Oh, and don’t forget the bruised ribs.
