BENNY BLOSS — LUNGS, STERNUM | OUT
Comment: Bloss had a big crash at A1 and bruised his lungs and sustained a hairline fracture to his sternum. Amazingly, the team says Bloss is already back on the bike and is working toward getting back to racing. An exact return date is yet to be determined.
JUSTIN BOGLE — VARIOUS | OUT
Comment: Bogle sustained a concussion at the 2017 Monster Energy Cup, then crashed again later during testing. Until he returns, Malcolm Stewart will fill in for him.
JOSH HANSEN — FOOT | TBD

DAVI MILLSAPS — ELBOW, CONCUSSION | OUT

MARVIN MUSQUIN — SHOULDER | TBD
Comment: Musquin crashed in his heat race in Houston and was unable to race the main event due to a hurt shoulder. We have yet to receive official confirmation whether or not Musquin will be racing this weekend.

[Update: Racer X has heard from multiple sources that Tomac will attempt to race this weekend at round three in Anaheim.]
JAKE WEIMER — WRIST, SCAPULA, ELBOW, RIBS, LUNGS | OUT
