Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Finishes In The Top 10

Corona, Calif. (April 18, 2016) –  The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team arrived at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis looking to advance in the Eastern Regional 250SX Championship point standings. Wasting no time,Tyler Bowers and Gannon Audette quickly set the tone for the day during qualifying. Tyler logged the fastest lap in early morning qualifying and both riders found themselves advancing to the Main Event. The evening would end with Gannon finishing in 5th and Tyler in 9th.

Bowers Stays Hungry
Finishing qualifying with the fastest lap time, Tyler Bowers quickly advanced to the evening’s Main Event. In the final race, a collision with another rider would set him back a few positions. Tyler finished his night in 9th place and remains in 5th in the point standings.

“My weekend started pretty good,” said Bowers. Early in the day I was in the top three, my Kawasaki felt really good, and I sorted out a few minor issues in my heat. The big pileup in the first turn of the main completely stopped me and straight off I knew I had my work cut out for me. I put my head down and started clicking off passes. Unfortunately the hard push at the beginning of the race gave me arm pump towards the end and I wasn’t able to finish where I feel I belong. Time to put it behind us and look towards next weekend.”

Audette Stays Focused 

In the St. Louis Main Event, Gannon Audette nearly took the holeshot aboard his KX250F. Continuing to rely on his speed, he pushed himself throughout the entire night to remain at the front of the pack. After falling behind due to an entanglement with another rider, he quickly began climbing his way back to the top. Finishing strong, Gannon Audette placed 5th in the Main and now resides in 6th in the point standings.

“It was another good weekend. We made progress in practice and went into the night show eighth fastest. Learned a bit more in my heat where I finished fourth. In the main I had another great start in second until a rider passed me and then almost immediately stalled in my line. While avoiding him I caught a tough block and ended up with a minor tip over. From there I just tried to put my laps together and came home with a fifth. Overall I feel it was a good weekend, not quite the podium I wanted but it’s hard to complain about a top five. I’d like to give a special thanks to the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team for this incredible opportunity, I’m really looking forward to Foxboro next weekend.”
