Got the news an hour or so ago.
Worst news in my ears for sometime for sure.
I love Ross!
Were friends for 25 yrs. + !
On & off the track, business & otherwise, Ross
is simply the most awesome personality in the racing
ranks to me. Again, I love Ross.
I felt sickened when I heard, & I immediately called Will
to see if it's so..................
It is & he's going into surgery.
I'm praying, & I'm not a prayer!
As floored as I am, my heart goes out to all in his family.
I'm numb!
Pray for his recovery, we are.
Dave O. & family

Quote from his brother Donn on Motonews :

"Ross' front wheel broke in the whoops at Starwest today and he went over the bars in a horrific crash. He broke his collarbone, collapsed a lung and has a concussion. The worst, though, is broken L9 L10 and L11 vertebrae. He has no feeling below his waist. Surgery to install rods starts soon. I'm in shock. My big brother is my hero and has always seemed invincible in my eyes. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers."

Just spoke to Donn (Ross' Bro) and he's in surgery right now. Bad thing is that he's in Riverside hospital. Same hospital as Fonsaca was in. They like to do surgery right away and that's not always the best thing to do.

Please pray for Ross. He's one of my best friends and hope he makes it back. He has no feeling right now, but with a little luck he will be back on his feet.

This sucks! Please pray.
