Justin Fraughton Needs Your HelpFriday, September 1, 2006 | 8:42 AM
Justin Fraughton, at 20 years old, is a top motocross prospect from American Fork, UT. He has been racing motocross for 13 years and has been competing locally, and at the Amateur Nationals each year trying to accomplish his dream of someday competing professionally in AMA Supercross and National events. He has competed against some of the best names currently in the sport and has had some great rides in the A class at the World Mini Grand Prix, Mammoth Mountain, and the amateur day at the AMA Washougal National this year as well.
On Thursday, August 24th, Justin was pushing hard and tried to make a charge on the last lap of the 125 Pro second moto at Rocky Mountain Raceway in Salt Lake City, UT. He high sided off of the top of a steep downhill and landed on his head very hard. He was immediately lifeflighted to the University of Utah Hospital. It was determined within minutes of him arriving at the hospital that he had a severe blood clot and hematoma on the left side of his brain. He instantly went into surgery to repair that. The surgery was a success and he has been steadily recovering ever since.
Justin is still in critical condition and is in desperate need of your prayers. He is a fighter and he will be fighting with everything he has to get back on his feet again as soon as possible.
He is in the Nuero Critical Center at the University of Utah Hospital. Cards or letters can be sent to:
