He's a juvenile. If you were close enough to him, you'd know who he is. If you're asking to pray for him, just pray. God knows who he is. Otherwise it's not something that should be put on here.

Well you certainly don't truly care about him or you wouldn't put his name on here.

People who truly care wouldn't be on topix looking for an answer either right? Cause this sight is good for nothing but drama lies and bullchit.

Actually the site itself is informative and a way to find out some things that never seem to make it in the papers without an unbiased view. However, unfortunately it seems to be a majority of those that reply that are full of drama, lies and as you put it "bull chit".

Prayers said for the young man, his family and loved ones.

I'm pretty sure his last name was Hillis, unsure of first name. Just pray for him. God know's who he is!
Gods blessings be on him & his Family!!

NO he did not die. His mom posted that the doctors took out his breathing tube and he's breathing on his own. Other than that I don't know...I'm not at the hospital. However he is at Vanderbilt, and yes, he is in very critical condition. Prayers going up for this boy.

he's alive, he's dead, over and over.

He has a soul. He has family. Would you people please stop posting lies on here? please? people in this sad town are spreading lies like wild fire. If you are not family or close friends then you are pathetic people trying to find out news on something that means nothing to you. Because if you were you would know. and if you don't it's none of your damn business.

I don't know him. I wasn't at the race. BUT I've been very worried about him. I've prayed for him. I've grieved over this. I still care very much even though I have no idea who he is. YOU are the one who is acting pathetically, and YOU should be ashamed.

This is copied straight from Lake Hillis's brother Luke Hillis's facebook. Luke is Lake's older brother. He is also asking if anybody has any video clips of the wreck to message him on facebook. Thank you.
"They aint got lake on a feedin tube but the part of the brain that controlls sleepin is where the blood is so until that bloods gets out he will be asleep till then it could be any amount of time till they get it all out so maybe it wont be to much longer and the part he is bleedin is comin from the part that controls your memory and who you are so we will have to see how that turns out just pray and he will come out of it come on lake your bout to the checkered flag you can do it brother

Thank you for a factual update; there are many strangers praying not only for this young man, but also for those who love him. It is so very hard to see the one you love suffering. Thank you again "There it is" for the update....

His name is Lake Hillis. He is 15 years old and lives in Rock Island, Tennessee. About 20 minutes from Sparta. He is my little buddy. We ride 4wheelers together all the time. He had brain swelling and bruised lungs due to helmet being to big causing his head to jerk around and bruised lungs due to no chest protecter. I have been to Vanderbilt to see him but cant go every day like I want to due to college. He is progressing for the better every single day. All the prayers are needed and he will open his eyes soon!
