Top Fuel Motorcycle legend Larry “Spiderman” McBride has been confined to his home for the past week under doctor’s orders.
The 14-time Top Fuel champion continues to recover from burns to his lower body sustained at the IDBL Orient Express U.S. Nationals at Atco Raceway Sept. 13, where he suffered a major explosion.
As part of his pre-skin graft debridement, the process of removing dead tissue from wounds, McBride is visited by a medical professional twice a day for cleanings.
“It hurts,” McBride said.
The doctor wants McBride to stay home to minimize the risk of infection.
“At this point the chance of me making the finals in Valdosta is slim to none,” McBride said dejectedly. “My doctor told me if it makes me feel better he will give me a 10-percent chance, but it’s a long shot.”
The Spiderman will soon have skin graft surgery.
