BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Two drivers remain hospitalized following their crash in a legends race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The family of Larry Pearson says he is in fair condition and came out of surgery "OK" for a broken left ankle he injured in Saturday's race.

Pearson also broke his pelvis and hand, and his family says he will need additional surgery on his hip.

Charlie Glotzbach is listed in good condition, and his family says he is feeling much better.

The two were among 12 former NASCAR drivers racing in a non-sanctioned charity event organized by the track. Pearson was injured when he spun and was hit in the driver-side door by Glotzbach.

Pearson is the son of three-time NASCAR champion David Pearson.
