We finally have an update on Jeremy Martin and it’s not good. At the first 250SX West Region round in Orlando 2 on Saturday, Martin came up short in the first rhythm section off the start and was landed on by rookie Stilez Robertson. Martin got up holding his shoulder and was unable to return for the restart.
According to the team, Martin suffered a dislocated shoulder and after meeting with his doctors the decision was made to rest his shoulder and work on returning to full fitness. Martin’s doctors will continue to evaluate his progress and an update on his return will follow at a later date.
“Many of you saw the big crash I was involved in off the start in Orlando,” he said. “Unfortunately, it left me with a dislocated left shoulder. I got an MRI on Monday and have had some really good conversations with some good doctors about what’s the best plan for my return. At this early stage, I don’t know exactly when I’ll be back yet. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me. I really appreciate the support.”
Martin, a pre-season title favorite, will certainly miss Round 2 at Daytona next weekend. After that? We’ll have to wait and see.
