Team America’s Jason DiSalvo crashed his Suzuki GSX-R750 Wednesday afternoon in Superstock practice at Daytona International Speedway, breaking a bone in his right foot.

DiSalvo crashed on his second lap after pitting to have mechanics re-attach a front brake caliper that had fallen off and caused him to run off the track in turn one on the previous lap.

After the pitstop, the 18-year-old from New York returned to the track and highsided in the International Horseshoe on his second lap.

“I just highsided,” said DiSalvo, after returning from the getting X-rays at the Speedway’s infield care center. “My tires weren’t quite warm and I tried to get on the throttle too hard too soon. I’m still going to try and race. Jeff Haney is out trying to find me some bigger boots to put on after it swells up. If I can’t race in both (250 Grand Prix and Superstock), I’m only going to run the 250.”
