Honda HRC rider Justin Brayton came together with SmarTop/Bullfrog Spas/MotoConcepts Honda's Vince Friese late in the 450SX main event at Daytona that has resulted in a broken metacarpal bone in his pinky finger.
According the the Honda HRC PR, Brayton will be reevaluated after the Seattle Supercross to see if everything is healing properly. Read what the team had to say about the incident here:
Brayton was involved in a run-in with Vince Friese on the final lap of the main event, hurting his left hand. On Monday following the race, he was evaluated by his physician, and it was determined that he had fractured the metacarpal in his pinky finger. Brayton’s recovery will take three to six weeks, and he will be reevaluated at the three-week mark (following the Seattle Supercross).
Brayton gave an update via his Instagram as well:

Unfortunately I got taken down on the last lap in Daytona which resulted in a broken hand. I was still able to finish the race in tenth but knew right away something was wrong. Gonna take a couple weeks off then have it re-evaluated. Hate I have to miss a race or two but I don’t think it’s worth risking it with limited strength in my hand. Thanks to the team for the continued support!! @honda_racing_us
