Arlington Supercross: Regal Returns
2011 AMA Supercross
After some training this weekend at teammate James Stewart’s SX compound in Florida, Kyle Regal is fit to return to the AMA Supercross series this weekend at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Regal, who was injured at practice for Daytona Supercross, now has five races on the San Manuel Yamaha YZ450F to make up some points; he is currently in 15th with 60 points.
Kyle Regal (San Manuel Yamaha Supercross) says: “It felt great riding again and getting back into the swing of things. I’m super excited for this weekend’s race, not only because it’s my first race back, but because it will be in my home state. Hopefully I’ll be able to give everyone a good performance.”
After his Daytona injury, Regal missed that Supercross round, and the subsequent races in Indianapolis, Jacksonville and Toronto.
Initial medical evaluation had revealed broken bones in his wrist, including the scaphoid bone, an injury that his teammate James Stewart is all too familiar with. But after further evaluation, medical experts concluded Regal that Regal didn’t break his scaphoid, but rather chipped his radius bone.
This is a much quicker healing process, which is why Regal wil return this weekend at Arlington Supercross.
