Corona, Calif. (March 9, 2016) – The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team makes their way up to Roger Center in Toronto for Round 3 in the Eastern Regional 250SX Championship. We can expect both Tyler Bowers and Arnaud Tonus to come out hungry and determined to land on that podium this weekend in Canada.
Bowers Looking To Set The Tone In Toronto
Tyler Bowers looked to improve off of Round 2 and started with a solid run in his heat to advance into the main, where he was able to get in good positioning out of the gate and stay within the top 10 group, crossing the checkered flag in the #9 spot. While Bowers is currently in 6th place for the Eastern Regional Point Standings, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team is in the business of winning races, and that is what Bowers is looking to do to move his way up the chart. He is excited for Toronto as he’s been conditioning hard all week to feel ready to set the tone and pace in Round 3.
Tonus Pushing To Move Up The Ladder
Arnaud Tonus had a much improved performance from the prior rounds, qualifying into the main after a hard-fought heat race. To start the main, Tonus would get out of the gate in 12th, but began pushing the tempo to pass several riders over the 15-laps stretch, to finish in 6th at Daytona. Arnaud Tonus currently sits in 9th place for the Eastern Point Standings and is looking to continue putting in work throughout this week to win in Toronto this Saturday, improving his stance in the points race.
