Monster Energy/ Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Garrett Marchbanks started Round 13 with a solid heat race finish inside Rice-Eccles Stadium, but the tricky track conditions due to rain collected the Utah native and forced him to end the night early. Marchbanks was sent to the hospital for evaluation on his ribs and will now have a week and a half off before the Eastern Regional 250SX championship resumes on June 17.
“Garrett was riding well and had a good heat race so it was tough to see him get hurt. He stayed overnight in the hospital for observation on a bruised lung and will hopefully have some good news soon.” – Zach White, R&D Manager
“Today was a rough day. Between the rainy weather and sloppy track conditions, I didn’t help myself with the bad start in the main event,” said Marchbanks. “My ribs and back are really sore from my crash so I will get checked out, take these 10-days to recover and go from there. I hope to be back out there a week from Wednesday and make up some points.”
