Dakota Dickerson

We haven’t posted anything in a while so here is an update. The surgery went very well and Dakota now sports 6 pins in his arm. Probably coming out in the next 2-3 weeks. His spirits are great and if you’ve seen him around the track that’s because he can’t stay away and chomping at the bit to start his rehab. As soon as the pins are out he will begin physical therapy on the arm and wrist. Doc says 9 months to a year before fully recovered. We are hoping to get D back in a kart in 4 months to start practicing again and racing by April 2014. If the breaks weren’t so complex and effecting his growth plates we’d push it a bit but we want this to heal so he can make SpringNats and maybe a COA race for 2014. We’ll have to wait and see. Thanks to all of you who continually email and text D on a fast recovery. I need to get him back to racing because he is driving me nuts but I wouldn’t want it any other way!
