IRL star Kenny Brack is reported in good condition after undergoing further successful surgery on his back and right ankle at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis this week.

Dr Henry Bock, director of medical services for the Indy Racing League, has confirmed that the Swede, injured at the IRL season finale in Texas, has suffered no side-effects to surgery required after a minor problem prevented the procedure from being completed while he was in hospital in Dallas. Dr Terry Trammell oversaw the procedure to further stabilise Brack's back after the initial operation on 13 October, which involved a spinal fusion of the L2, L3 and L4 vertebrae.

"Everything went very well, and we were able to further strengthen Kenny's spine," Trammell said, "This shouldn't slow down his rehabilitation process at all."

The surgery on Brack's right ankle, performed by Dr Kevin Scheid, involved a bone graft to complete reconstruction of the ankle, and also went well. It is anticipated that the Team Rahal driver will be transferred to the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana later this week to continue his recovery.

Further updates on Brack's condition will be provided when available.
