AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- A Motocross driver is now in critical condition after a crash at the James Brown Arena.

Kenny Steinke was injured in an accident during the Monster X show in late April.

Steinke is a member of Team FMX based in Orlando.

"He was performing a trick where he takes one leg over the handlebars and leans back," said Travis Willis, a member of Team FMX, in an interview last month. "In the process of getting back on the bike, his foot got caught up in the handlebars. And we're only in the air for just a few seconds, and it just wasn't long enough for him to get unhooked."

His team and family have set up a way for folks to donate. You can make donations on Paypal at downsideupfmx@yahoo.com.
