Elena Myers seriously injured in race crash!

Elena Myers, age 14, was seriously injured Sunday when she crashed her Kawasaki ZX-6R during a WERA West weekend at Buttonwillow Raceway.

Myers is hospitalized with a lacerated spleen and a concussion. She also suffered a burn on her leg as a result of being trapped under the crashed motorcycle until emergency crews arrived.

Thoughts and prayers for her speedy and 100% recovery, keep us posted if possible JJ, we see alot of these and never find out what happens with the injured long term.
