Supercross rider Justin Brayton will miss this Saturday’s event at Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington. He was injured this past Saturday while the tour was at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

At this time, we are not clear if he will just put this weekend. Or longer.

The tour will then have a one week break during the weekend of April 2nd. Supercross will return to action on April 9th at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

“After a get off last weekend in Indy, resulting in a concussion, I’m gonna sit this weekend in Seattle out,” Brayton said in a Facebook post. “After consulting my doctor, talking with the team and my family about it, we think it’s best to wait and get back on the bike next week and be 100% ready for St.Louis in a couple weeks. Good thing is I’m feeling totally fine and have been in the gym and on the bicycle a few times this week, but Supercross is a different beast and at this point in my career it’s best to be smart. See ya in a couple weeks.”

Brayton is the second regular to take some time off this season. Ken Roczen previously missed that he would miss time on tour.
