REED WILL NOT RACE
Chad Reed will not race in Arlington due to the injuries he sustained in a crash last weekend in San Diego. Reed confirmed the news via his Twitter account, stating that his shoulder “popped out” during the second and final timed session. He immediately left the stadium to get an MRI and additional x-rays.
Well we tried.. Went to go for a time and shoulder either popped out or the coracoid process pulled off which is what we were concerned bout
