Heath Voss Out with Injury

Yamaha Factory Star to miss Southwick and Budds Creek

Cypress, CA (June 9, 2006) -  - Yamaha Factory racer Heath Voss will be forced to miss at least the next two AMA National Motocross events, Southwick and Budds Creek, after tests determined the likable former World Supercross Champion  broke a bone in his hand. 

Heath crashed during a qualifying race at the High Point National in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania and was unable to compete the rest of the afternoon due to the pain and the inability to grip the handlebars.  Heath returned to his home in Mico, Texas and after meeting with doctors it was determined he would miss at least the next two rounds. 

“Heath is one of the hardest working, most determined, and nicest racers I’ve ever worked with,” explains Yamaha Team Manager, Jim Perry.  “I know how badly he wants to race this weekend.  Hopefully, his hand heals quickly and he can be back on his YZ450F before the Red Bud event.”
