   With Daytona SX tomorrow, the 450 field has unfortunately slimmed down. Two riders who were out last year due to injury, are out again after the horrible crash in Atlanta. Wil Hahn is out while he undergoes surgery for a broken collarbone. He was out all of 2015 due to injury as well. I’m sure this is a devastating blow to his comeback, even though 2016 has been challenging for him. Andrew Short, who announced would retire after the 2016 season, is also out. He suffered his second serious concussion within 6 months. He is quoted on Instagram saying, “The burns, bruising, and cuts will heal but injuring my head scares me.” The danger that comes with this sport is real, and I would have to agree that injuring my brain twice that fast would scare me too!
   It isn’t all bad news for the 450 field though. Team Tedder was able to pull a family favorite out of retirement. Nick Wey will be back in action for the rest of the year! Also making his debut this weekend is Riverside native Josh Grant.  I can’t wait to see what they bring back to the racing ambiance with all the riders feeling more confident after Ken Roczen was able to outright beat Ryan Dungey in Arlington, and rookie/teammate Marvin Musquin came close in Atlanta (prior to the unfortunate Stewart incident).
   This is the 250 East Coast round 2, with minimal crashes in Atlanta, who do you think will come out on top and shine? The privateers appear to be very strong and competitive this year. 2016 has been exciting and surprising so far, do you for see any new winners or big names this weekend? Tune in Tuesday on our site or with your Kaotic Radio app at 6pm PST for a recap of the race and let’s talk dirt!
