Reed & JGR partner for 2018 MEC

1 month ago

Chad Reed and Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) have agreed to a deal that will see the two-time AMA Supercross Champion contest the 2018 Monster Energy Cup on October 13 with the JGR-run Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki team. Reed recently contested the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season finale with the team, finishing eighth in his first Pro Motocross race since 2015.

“My experience with the team at the Ironman National was awesome,” said Reed. “The race went better than I personally thought it would, because I wasn’t in 100-percent race shape. I achieved my personal goals. Since that time, I have continued to work with the team and help test the Suzuki RM-Z450. I’m enjoying the bike and team. I am looking forward to racing the Monster Energy Cup.”

According to JGR Team Manager, Jeremy Albrecht, Reed has proved pivotal to the team’s testing program, stating: “Chad Reed has been outstanding to work with. He has proven to be a valued addition to our testing program with the Suzuki RM-Z450. I’m eager to see Reed race in Las Vegas, and I think we will turn heads. This should be fun.”

Will we see the Australian on board a Suzuki come Anaheim 1; the opening round of the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series? Time will tell.
