The family of dirt-track racer Bryan Clauson says his organs have been donated to five other people.

Clauson died after a crash in a Kansas race last weekend.

In a statement posted on the Twitter account of Bryan Clauson Racing on Wednesday, Clauson’s family members say they knew as they were saying their last goodbyes “that five families were also sitting in a hospital room somewhere, comforting their loved one and each other while praying for a miracle that Bryan ultimately delivered for them.”

They say he will live on in part through “the lucky individuals that will benefit from Bryan making a decision to be a donor.”

Clauson died in a Nebraska hospital Sunday following Saturday night’s crash at the Belleville Midget Nationals in Kansas.
