Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin will miss the remainder of the 2021 Lucas Oils AMA Pro Motocross Championship after sustaining a broken wrist at Indianapolis.
Martin had a good start inside of the top five. He put his head down and closed the gap to Justin Cooper. After he passed his teammate, he dropped the hammer and was the only 250 rider to break the two-minute lap time, setting the fastest laps of the race on back-to-back laps around the halfway point.
Right on the heels of the race leader Jett Lawrence, Martin put on the pressure and had a couple of looks but then crashed out of the race on Lap 11. Unfortunately, the Minnesotan broke his arm and will be sidelined from the final two rounds to focus on returning to full fitness for the 2022 season.
“Really bummed to crash like that in moto one after feeling so strong on my Star Racing Yamaha,” Martin said. ” I’m proud I gave it a shot riding through injury this year and can rest my head at night knowing I did everything I could for my team and myself. It’s just a bummer for sure. I felt that I had the pace for the win, but that’s racing. We’re going to heal up and shift our focus to 2022.! Thank you to everyone for the support this year.”
