Monster Energy Yamaha has announced Josh Grant will miss this weekend’s final round of the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship after being injured on Wednesday at the factory test track.

Grant, who has been with Yamaha since Seattle as the fill-in rider for Aaron Plessinger, sustained injuries to his leg and ribs in the training crash that will rule him out of Saturday’s 17th round.

“This was not the phone call you want to get, however, it is the sad part of the game,” said Monster Energy Yamaha team manager Jim Perry. “What a bummer for Josh Grant and the whole team.

“Josh has been making improvements each week with two strong top 10 finishes in the previous events. He has been working hard to finish the supercross series on a high note and it’s a shame that he will be sidelined for the finale.”

As a result of Grant’s injury, with regular duo Plessinger and Justin Barcia already on the sidelines, Monster Energy Yamaha will be absent from Sam Boyd Stadium’s Monster Energy AMA Supercross finals this weekend.
