Jalek Swoll’s second season in the AMA Lucas Oils Pro Motocross Championship has ended early following a shoulder dislocation at Crawfordsville in Indianapolis.

Swoll was unable to lineup on the gate after injuring his shoulder during a practice crash earlier in the day.

The Round 3 overall winner attempted the first-moto sight lap but his shoulder popped out of the socket, causing him to make the tough decision to sit out the rest of the day.

“I was feeling really good and on the last lap, I had the bike sideways over one of the big triples and on the way down there was this weird freak incident and my feet came off the pegs and I just slid through the whole bike. I was trying to grab with my legs but it didn’t happen and I came down on the landing and had a big one,” Swoll said.

“I tried to give the shoulder a go but it was just too weak from the impact on the first crash and kept popping out in the second qualifying. I tried to go out there for the first moto but it wasn’t worth the risk/reward for the day. We’re going to get it evaluated on Monday – I’m going to take my health seriously now and hopefully come back strong next year.”

Swoll had had a successful second season in the 250 class with regular top ten finishes and just outside the top five in the standings.
