Nelson has been injured at a practice track in Southern California as he prepared for round two of the 2016 AMA Supercross Championship. The crash resulted in the rider being taken away in an ambulance with concussion and suspected shoulder injuries.
This is a huge blow for Nelson who impressed over the weekend in Anaheim recording a second place finish behind Copper Webb in the 250 class.
