Jordon Smith Out for Arlington

What started as a promising season for GEICO Honda's Jordon Smith has now come to a stop due to lingering shoulder issues. The second-year pro out of North Carolina started the 250SX West Region campaign going 5-3-6, but then hurt his shoulder at the practice track before round four in Oakland.
Then came crashes that only further aggravated the injury, including a endo in the Glendale whoops while leading his heat race on the last lap. He crashed last week when he bumped into the back of Cooper Webb over a jump, further hurting that shoulder.
Smith is down to tenth in the points now and will be out of this weekend's Arlington SX. He has over a month to heal up before 250SX West resumes in Santa Clara, California, on April 2nd.
