While at Glen Helen Raceway for a standard Thursday practice session, one of our editors saw the Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna team tending to Jason Anderson on the side of the track. Anderson reportedly ran into another rider while doing laps and went down, which resulted in some sort of leg injury. Team Crew Chief Steve Westfall carried Anderson off the track and they left the facility immediately after. We have reached out to the team for an update or official word, but have not yet received a response. We will update this post as we learn more.
UPDATE MAY 31 11:35 AM | Motocross Action has a post that includes photos and additional details of the crash on their site.

UPDATE JUNE 1 10:05 AM | The Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna team have shared a social media update that states Anderson has already undergone surgery for the injury, with a four to six-week timeline for recovery.
