Honestly, considering all of that damage, Reed is fortunate not to be even more injured, and I personally hope he makes a quick and full recovery.
What's most frustrating about this is that Reed was on a roll when it happened. "Speedy" set the fastest lap in qualifying (pictured above), finished second in his heat, and was pressuring Ryan Villopoto for the lead in the main when it all went wrong. Reed is not known for being a "crasher," although he has hit the dirt a few times this season. Few can forget his spectacular get-off at Millville last year, a horrific crash that he was amazingly able to ride away from to finish the race. In Dallas, it appears that luck ran out for Reed.
Get well soon, Chad.
