Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson has pulled out of tonight’s fifth round of Monster Energy Supercross in Indianapolis with a dislocated finger.

Anderson injured his finger during this afternoon’s first timed session and he attempted to ride during the second qualifier, but to no avail.

“Been a really tough start to my season,” Anderson stated. “My results are not where they have been in past years and I’m not happy about it at all.

“Today I didn’t crash or anything, I just landed, my hand slipped and I dislocated my finger. As much as a frustration, it’s been no place I’d rather be than here trying to problem-solve how to go faster and be better on my dirt bike!”

He then confirmed that he won’t be back for the night show and a return date remains to be determined: “Sorry to my sponsors and fans, but I’m gonna heal up and be back out there trying hard ASAP.”

Following a difficult opening portion of the 2021 season, former 450SX champion Anderson is currently 12th in the point-standings with a best result of seventh at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday.
