Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing's Justin Barcia will be back in action this weekend, March 16, at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, round eleven of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship. Barcia has successfully completed the concussion protocol and is now cleared to race. The Anaheim 1 winner was back on his YZ450F this week, felt good and has given the team the thumbs up for his return to action.
Teammate Aaron Plessinger begins his road to recovery after last week's crash at Daytona. The rookie suffered a broken right heel in the main event. Dr. Wang performed surgery on Plessinger's heel yesterday at the Keck Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA. At this early stage, Plessinger and the team await more information on his recovery and return date.
