The 450 Class, which is already without Trey Canard and Broc Tickle today, was dealt another blow when Jason Anderson announced he would be sitting out round seven of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Southwick.
Racer X’s Steve Matthes reported this morning that Anderson crashed on Thursday, and while everything checked out okay, he was dealing with a lot of soreness. Anderson tried to ride qualifying this morning, but only completed two laps and was last in the first 450 A session.
After practice, Anderson made the announcement on Twitter that he would be sitting out today.

We'll update this post when more information is available.
Anderson told Racer X's Jason Weigandt that he tried a scrub and it went too far and he high-sided and hurt his back "really bad."
Anderson discussed his injury with NBC Sports' Georgia Albertson.
