Please keep Zac in your thoughts. He has a compressed and fractured L1 vertabrae. He is having surgery today, where they will put in rods and screws to stabalize the injury. It is a common back injury, with 100% recovery expected. He got lucky, in that there was no nerve or spinal cord injury.
He was racing at the Lorreta Qualifier in Boise. He went down in the first turn and then raced his way back thru the pack to about 5th, when he crahed. He was doing the double triple all weekend, and decided to play it safe with only 2 laps to go,and take the inside double double since the wind was so bad. He over jumped the 1st double and endo'd off the second double. Bad crash. He will be out for 6 months to a year.
Little c and I are praying for you Zac and your mom and dad. Heal up fast. We look forward to seeing you back out on the track.
I have been txting Dale, he has let me know that Zac is scheduled for surgery tonight at 7pm.
Will post again when I know more. Keep him in your thoughts.

Thats great news. Any speculation on when he will be riding again. I'm sure its too early to tell but hopefully its a quick recovery for him.
Heal up soon Zac your in my thoughts and prayers. Hope you have a speedy recovery.

As you have heard, Zac did well in surgery. Riding speculation is 6-12 months, depending on how fast he heals.
Lets not forget about him as he gets better, its gonna be tough not being able to ride.
The DeVol crew sends our prayers and thoughts for a quick recovery Zachy-boy!!! We hope to see you soon.
Any updates on Zac?
Had a quick txt with Dale this morning. He said Zak is home, and walking without the use of his walker.
Thanks for the update!!
