On Thursday, August 16, Team Honda Muscle Milk's Tommy Hahn was involved in a crash while practicing at a track in Texas. Hahn sustained a back injury, which will take him out of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship for the remainder of the 2012 season. Hahn who is filling in aboard the factory-prepared CRF450R has put together noteworthy finishes throughout the season, grabbing his first podium finish in moto one last weekend at Southwick.
"I'm thankful that it wasn't worse," stated Hahn, who was released from the hospital late Thursday night. "I was out practicing when I swapped out, sending me over the bars. I'm bummed I will not be able to finish out the season but am grateful for the opportunity that Team Honda Muscle Milk has given me and want to thank the team and all my sponsors for their support."
