Cole Seely — Will not be racing in Vegas. Cole made an abbreviated comeback from his groin injury in New York last Saturday night, but on lap 17 he reinjured the sore muscle and finished 21st. He will be replaced by Christian Craig in Vegas. Craig will be the full-time fill-in rider for Ken Roczen in the AMA 450 Nationals.
Justin Bogle — Justin crashed hard in practice at Met-Life Stadium last week and skipped the race, but apart from soreness in his neck and shoulder he will be back for Las Vegas.
Broc Tickle — Fractured a bone in his wrist while testing at the Suzuki test track. He is on indefinite leave.
Trey Canard – After a season already decimated by injuries and missed races, Trey Canard sat out the rest of the Supercross season, but, unfortunately, broke his collarbone while practicing for the outdoors.
Weston Peick – Wrist injury that required surgery, but had the pins removed recently and will be back for the 450 Nationals.
Mike Alessi – Broke his collarbone at Press Day before the St. Louis Supercross. Mike missed the rest of the Supercross season and the World Two-Stroke Championship (where he is the defending champion) to prepare for the 2017 Canadian Nationals, where he has a Kawasaki ride lined up.
Christophe Pourcel – Citing lingering injuries, Husqvarna sat Christophe down and replaced him with Dean Wilson. Pourcel will race the Canadian Nationals, which start in June.
Alex Martin — Still suffering from the aftereffects of the Christian Craig incident. Alex has elected to sit out the rest of the Supercross season.
Jeremy Martin — The Geico Honda 250 West rider dropped out of the 250 Supercross series to get ready for the 250 Nationals.
Colt Nichols – Crashed practicing between races and suffered an MCL tear. Colt missed the start of the 2017 season with a broken femur (and switched from the 250 West to the 250 East). We saw him testing at Glen Helen last week, so he will be back for the Nationals.
