ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) -- Sports car racer Mark Pombo has been taken to a Milwaukee hospital with unspecified injuries after a crash at Road America on Friday morning.

A series spokesman says Pombo was conscious when he was taken to Froedtert Hospital, and his condition will be updated later in the day.

Pombo was practicing for the Continental Tire Series race at the track, a four-mile road course in central Wisconsin that also is hosting the NASCAR Nationwide Series this weekend.
