The highs and the lows for PJ Jacobsen in 2020 were definitely more on the low end of the scale. After winning the opening round of the MotoAmerica Stock 100 Series at Road America 1, Jacobsen had a frightening crash when he had to jump off his Ducati at speed when it caught fire during morning warmup for round two. The result were serious burns to Jacobsen's lower body. The New Yorker tried to come back at Road Atlanta, but the injuries were too severe for him to continue. So just like that his season was over. We caught up with Jacobsen this week for Off Track With Carruthers And Bice to see how he's doing and what his future plans consist of.

Jacobsen finished the weekend very strong with a second place podium at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta this past Sunday. After posting the fastest time in the wet session on Friday he suffered a hard crash during Qualifying 1 on Saturday. The results for the Celtic HSBK Yamaha Supersport racer in the opening Motoamerica weekend were much stronger than the finishes indicated. Coming into the race, the team had minimal pre-season testing. In addition, Jacobsen was injured in his crash on Saturday. Despite all of these limiting factors he was able to run in third place and finished in 6th overall on Saturday. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
