Brack moves to rehabilitation center in Indy

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind--. Injured IRL IndyCar Series driver Kenny Brack was moved from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis to the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana Thursday.

On Tuesday, Brack was evaluated by Dr. Terry Trammell and Dr. Kevin Scheid after his arrival to Methodist Hospital.

Brack, the 1998 IRL champion and 1999 Indy 500 winner, remains in satisfactory condition and will begin a rehabilitation program for his injuries sustained in the Oct. 12 Chevy 500 IndyCar Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, said Dr. Scheid.

Brack, driver of the No. 15 Pioneer/Miller Lite Honda Dallara for Team Rahal, suffered a variety of injuries including a fractured right femur, a fractured sternum, a fractured lumbar (L-3) vertebrae and fractures to both ankles. Brack had surgery on Oct. 12 (femur and ankles) and Oct. 13 (vertebrae) at Dallas' Parkland Hospital.

"I'm starting to feel better each day," said Brack, the Sweden native who lives in Upper Arlington, Ohio. "I feel good about going to the rehab center now. I know the rehab will be a long process but I plan to work hard and get back to my old self."
