Former AMA Pro Superbike Champion Josh Herrin crashed his Scheibe Racing BMW S1000RR Superbike during the second Superbike/Stock 1000 session Tuesday at the official MotoAmerica pre-season test at Barber Motorsports Park.
Herrin had just done a 1:43.757 lap time on the wet 2.3-mile road course and was on his eighth lap of the session when he highsided exiting Turn Five. According to Scheibe Racing owner/crew chief Steve Scheibe, the speed of the crash was 70 kph, which is 43.5 mph.
Herrin walked away from the scene of the crash and appeared to be holding his left arm. He is currently having a potential shoulder injury evaluated at the track, according to his team.
We will post more information as it becomes available.
Update: Herrin told Roadracingworld.com that he did hurt his right shoulder, decided to sit out the remainder of Day One, and will try to ride again on Day Two.
