IRL IndyCar Series driver Kenny Brack was transported via air yesterday [October 21] to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis from Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, said Dr. Henry Bock, director of medical services for the Indy Racing League.

Brack, the 1999 Indianapolis 500 winner and 1998 IndyCar Series champion, remains in satisfactory condition and will be under the care of Dr. Kevin Scheid, an orthopedic surgeon from OrthoIndy.

"I want to thank everyone for their support for [wife] Anita and I the last week," Brack said from his hospital room. "I just didn't know how many friends, fans and racing enthusiasts were out there. It is great to know they are behind me, and I'm anxious to see everyone in the near future."

Brack suffered a fractured right femur, a fractured sternum, fractured lumbar vertebrae and fractures to both ankles in an accident on Lap 188 of the Chevy 500 on October 12 at Texas Motor Speedway, the final race of the 2003 IndyCar Series season.

He underwent successful surgery on his right femur and both ankles October 12 and successful surgery on his back October 13.
