Following a consultation with his doctors, AutoTrader.com/JGR Suzuki’s Justin Barcia has been cleared to race the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season finale this weekend at Ironman Raceway, the team announced today.
Barcia has missed the last three rounds due to a concussion sustained at the Washougal National on July 29.
JGR also confirmed that Barcia would compete in the MXGP of USA scheduled for Sept. 2-3 at WW Motocross Park in Jacksonville, Florida.
Barcia is a free agent at the end of the season and most of his 2017 campaign has been washed away with some injuries. A strong result at one of these races would be big for him.
Barcia has missed four rounds of the championship and is currently 13th overall in 450MX points. Although he doesn’t have a moto podium this season, Barcia has had prior success at the track, which hosted its first National in 2014, finishing second overall there last year.
