DALLAS --

John Force
Doctors updated John Force's family and team following a thorough evaluation of his multiple injuries and the prognosis for a full recovery is very good.

Force sustained a broken left ankle and severe abrasion on his right knee. Force's left wrist also was dislocated and broken and he sustained some severe abrasions and slight fractures on a number of fingers on his right hand.

Throughout all procedures Force was alert and responsive. CAT scans performed came back negative and showed no damage other than the injuries to his legs and hands. Surgeons will begin cleaning a number of his injuries tonight and possibly setting his fractures if the swelling is at an acceptable level.

The 14-time POWERade world champion suffered his injuries in a second round crash with racing legend Kenny Bernstein at the 22nd annual O'Reilly NHRA Fall Nationals presented by Castrol Syntec at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas.
