Justin Hill (arm lacerations) will attempt to race at RedBud

July 6, 2018

Despite an injury suffered last weekend, Justin Hill will attempt to race at RedBud, Autotrader/Yoshimura Suzuki confirmed in a social media post on Thursday night.

The team moved Hill up to the 450 Class a few weeks ago, and after two solid rounds (fifth at High Point, seventh at Muddy Creek), decided to leave him on the big bike for the rest of the season. But he finally hit trouble at Southwick, where he lacerated his arm during a Moto 1 crash and needed stitches. He finished 21st in that moto and did not line up for the second moto.

Even though he's missed seven of the 12 motos this season, Hill has already worked his way up to 13th in 450MX points.
