After crashing in the whoops early in the 250SX main event in Foxborough, Seth Hammaker would not rejoin the race and was classified in 22nd. Following the race, Hammaker has stated he did not dislocate or break anything in the crash and is turning his focus towards Nashville.

“I started off the weekend strong in qualifying and the heat race and felt really good about the night despite my few falls and mud-bogging moment earlier in the day,” said Hammaker. “I had great starts and felt good until I got sideways in the whoops and went down straight on my shoulder. I didn’t dislocate it, but it felt really sore and weak, so we decided to end the race early to prevent anything worse happening. We have the speed; I just need to stop making these small mistakes. Now we need to get ready for the East/West Showdown!”

Hammaker had entered the sixth round of 250SX East in Foxborough in sixth place in the standings having landed on the podium in two of the first five rounds. Following his DNF in Foxborough, Hammaker has now slipped to eighth in the standings, 48 points off the championship lead.

Though not 100% following the crash, Hammaker appears as though he will not miss a race and be ready to race the first of two East/West Showdowns this weekend in Nashville.
