DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A community in Western Kentucky is praying for a Kentucky superbike world championship star critically injured while training in Italy.

Nicky Hayden, 35, was in Italy on Wednesday training on his bicycle when he was hit by a car.

Hayden suffered severe brain damage and remains in critical condition.

Hundreds of fans have tweeted at the star, sharing their support.

Thursday night, friends gathered to pray for the racing star.

A mass was held for Hayden at Blood Catholic Church in Owensboro.

It's a waiting game to see if Hayden can pull through. His family is holding up the best they can in this difficult time.

"It's starting to sink in a little bit of how grave the situation may be," Marty Hayden, Nicky's Uncle. "It takes several hours to grasp the impact of it all.  At first, you're just in shock.  It's difficult to be logical."

Family members have been told in about three days, they'll be able to learn whether or not any swelling has gone down in Hayden's brain.

Hayden remains hospitalized in Italy.

For now, he remains in a medically induced coma.
