(WTHR) – IndyCar fans are hearing from driver Robert Wickens for the first time since he fractured his spinal cord and neck when he crashed at Pocono Raceway.
Wickens says all of the kind words and positivity from fans have meant the world to him and his family.
"I'm in rehab now trying to get back to 100 percent as quickly as possible but I don't know what the future holds for me," said Wickens in a video message shared on Twitter. "It's going to be a very long road to recovery and all I can say is I can promise you guys that I'm going to work as hard as possible and train as hard as possible to make sure I'm back in a race car as quickly as possible."
Wickens ended the short message by wishing everyone good luck at Sonoma.
A few days later, Wickens shared another video update to Twitter.
