Kenny is still in the ICU at Children's Hospital LA this morning. He is stable, but still unconscious.

On Sunday morning, I had one of the best races of my life. Kenny Anderson, starting from the back of the grid, charged to the front of the Production 250 class where he and I spent six laps fighting for the lead. Kenny outrode me, took the win, and set a new lap record in the process.

Now Kenny is fighting for his life after suffering a head injury in a race later in the day.

Kenny is just 12 years old, one of several incredibly talented young racers looking to make a career out of a sport they love and excel at.

Kenny was flown to Los Angeles Children’s Hospital this morning where he was initially considered stable, although still unconscious. Later in the morning his diagnosis took a turn for the worse, and his future looks grim.
