Anderson Hurt in Practice Crash

Well, dang. After a strong opening round at Fox Raceway last weekend, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson suffered a broken hand in a practice crash in his home state of New Mexico on Thursday and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, according to the team.

According to Anderson, his chain snapped off off of a jump and he broke his hand and knocked out some teeth.

“bummed to say that I will not be making it this weekend. Started my first Moto this morning at practice and off of a jump my chain snapped,,, something completely out of my control . I broke my hand and knocked some teeth out 😩 I gotta get it all handled on Monday (recovery timeline) and I will be back racing these outdoors at the end of the season. Sorry to my team and all the supporters but damn 2021 been a rough year for me .. let’s end this shit on a good note though!”
