Killian Rusk – Injured at Indy
Comment: Racer X received the following note from Rusk’s father following Indy: “During the semi race at Indy Killy took center rut going up the triple and a hit a hole. This flew him front-end low and caused him to come up short. He tried pulling the front end up and revving but did not have lift to get him all the way over. He came down hard on his front and his body hit his tank and bars really hard. He received help from the Asterisk crew. After assessing his injuries the doctors decided to send him to the ER. He had emergency surgery late Saturday night / early Sunday morning. Killy is now back in Murietta, CA, after a long flight Tuesday and seems to be feeling better. The doctors say he should be fine in few weeks. Special thanks to Dr. Bodnar and all the Asterisk guys.”

Comment: Weimer broke a bone in his wrist and dislocated his shoulder in qualifying in San Diego. He had the following to say about his injury on Instagram: “Ok so here is what I have going on. I dislocated my shoulder and broke a bone in my hand. My hand should be good in 4 weeks. My shoulder does not require surgery. I can’t move it for 2-3 weeks then I start rehab which could be about 6+ weeks. My hope is things progress quicker than that and can get back to racing but I will not come back until my shoulder is healed, strong and I am ready. I will do everything I can to get back on the track healthy and strong.
