Following the events of the last lap of the Grand Prix of Houston IZOD IndyCar Series race on Sunday, Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver Dario Franchitti was admitted awake and alert to Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center in Houston for a concussion, two spinal fractures and a fracture to his right ankle.  Last night Dario had surgery to temporarily stabilize the ankle.

He will remain in Houston for a few days, at which time he will be transported to Indianapolis for further evaluation.

“Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes.  They mean a lot to me.  I would also like to send my best to all the fans involved in the accident and hope that everyone is alright.” – Dario Franchitti
