Christian Craig suffered fractures in his pinkie and hand and will miss the next two 250SX West Rounds in Okaland and San Diego. I’ll get myself all fixed up and be back in Seattle after East Coast break.”
“The first main was pretty good,” said Craig of Glendale in a GEICO Honda team statement. “I got the holeshot then [Austin] Forkner shot me off the track. I was able to make my way up to third from probably seventh or eighth after going off the track. I was pumped on my riding that first main. Second main I got a mid-pack start and made my way to probably sixth pretty quickly in the first lap. A bunch of us were going into a corner after the sand and I grabbed my brake a little too hard. So it was just one thing after another.
“I worked hard to be able to race this year so it sucks honestly,” said Craig. “It’s clear I can be a front runner which makes me happy but set back after set back gets frustrating. I’ll get myself all fixed up and be back in Seattle after East Coast break.”
With just two races to cover before 250SX East begins, it appears likely the team will not hire a replacement rider for Craig or Lawrence. A source at the GEICO Honda team told us last night the team will not attend the Oakland Supercross this weekend.
