LaCrosse Shrugs Off Broken Hand, Ready For Title Defense

Not even a broken hand can slow down Benji LaCrosse.

The Luxemburg native, who now calls Green Bay home, is prepped to defend his Seymour Speedway IMCA modified track title when the first points night kicks off Sunday May 2 for Jackson Pointe Citgo night at the races.

A few weeks back LaCrosse suffered a broken right hand in a work accident. Despite having six screws put in his hand along with a splint, the former IMCA Supernationals champion managed an eighth place finish at the season opener at Luxemburg Speedway April 23. "It hurt a little bit, but the pain is starting to go away," said LaCrosse. "I normally race with my left hand anyway. I had to put some padding in to hold my arm up. It's a little distraction more than anything. If it rains this weekend I won't be too bummed out, because I'd like to give it a week or so to heal. But I'm a racer and I'll be there."
