The family of NASCAR Hall of Famer Jack Ingram said Tuesday that he is making small strides after suffering serious injuries in a weekend car accident near his Asheville, North Carolina home.

Ingram was driving through an intersection near the former site of Asheville Motor Speedway when a 1999 Ford pickup struck Ingram's driver side door, according to the Asheville Police Department accident report. In the report, the driver of the truck and a passerby told officers on the scene that Ingram did not stop at a stop sign.

Ingram was taken to Memorial Mission Hospital and is being treated in the intensive care unit. A passenger in Ingram's car was taken to the hospital complaining of arm pain; no injuries were listed for the driver of the pickup.

In an update on Caringbridge.com, Ingram's family said that the 80-year-old's injuries included five broken ribs, a collapsed lung and a puncture wound on his left side. He is under sedation to help him breathe.

"We are encouraged with his current state and remain cautiously optimistic," the family said in a statement on the site. "As always, we appreciate your prayers and well wishes and positive thoughts. We can't thank you enough."

Ingram was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2014. Before the (now) Xfinity Series was formed, Ingram won three straight titles from 1972-74 in what was then the Late Model Sportsman Division. When the Busch series was formed, he won the inaugural title in 1982 and again in 1985. In a 10-year span, he earned 31 wins – a record that stood until Mark Martin surpassed it in 1997. All but two of his wins came on short tracks.
