Monster Energy Yamaha’s Justin Barcia will miss a second consecutive race due to a concussion, Racer X has learned.
Barcia suffered a crash last week while testing prior to Atlanta Supercross and was taken to TOC in Tallahassee, Florida, for a medical check, according to the team.
Barcia won the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season opener at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, but suffered a big crash and a bruised tailbone at round three in the same stadium two weeks later. He hasn't made the podium since the opener, but he did finish third in the final Triple Crown main event in Detroit.
Aaron Plessinger will be the lone 450SX rider for the Monster Energy Yamaha team at round 10 of Monster Energy AMA Supercross in Daytona.
