Justin Barcia will not compete in this week’s Supercross Round 9 at Atlanta because he is being evaluated for a possible concussion suffered Wednesday in a training crash on his track in Florida.
Barcia began the season with a win on the muddy track in Anaheim I and has finished in the top 10 in six of seven events since. He is currently sixth in the points, 53 behind leader Cooper Webb.
Barcia is considered a local favorite for Atlanta fans after spending several years riding at the Millsaps Training Facility in Cairo, Ga.
Teammate Aaron Plessinger will be the only Monster Energy Yamaha rider this week.
