Kenny Brack was in serious and stable condition at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas on Sunday evening but more importantly the popular Swede was also awake and alert, according to the director of medical services for the IRL, Dr. Henry Bock.

Brack suffered a fractured right femur, a fractured sternum and lumbar and fractures to both ankles in a horrific accident with Tomas Scheckter on Lap 188 of the Chevy 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday.

The 1998 Indy Racing League Champion, 1999 Indy 500 winner and 2000 CART Jim Trueman Rookie of the Year winner was awake and alert throughout the immediate aftermath of his 220mph airborne impact with the catch fencing along the back straight of the 1.5-mile oval and was set to undergo surgery on the femur and both ankles on Sunday evening.
