Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team Returns to the Podium

Corona, Calif. (April 11, 2016) – On Saturday, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team returned to battle at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.  Tyler Bowers and Gannon Audette kicked things off early in the qualifying rounds. Both riders earned their position into the 250 Main Event, with Tyler finishing in 3rd and Gannon in 7th. In the 250 Main Event, Gannon earned his first podium of his career.

New Opportunities For Audette  
Gannon Audette, the newest member of the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team, found himself on the podium at Indianapolis. Aboard his Kawasaki KX250F, Gannon came out of the gate strong and grabbed the holeshot. Maintaining his speed and consistency throughout the race, he would find himself on the podium at the end of the night for the first time in his professional career and aims to return on the box in St. Louis.

“Today was awesome. The track was really fun tonight and I finished seventh in my Heat Race. I ended up starting pretty far outside of the gate but my Kawasaki hooked up great and I ended up getting the holeshot. I put in 15 solid laps and ended up with a podium. It was an awesome weekend.”

Bowers Keeps Fighting 
At this weekend’s race, Tyler Bowers continued to rise in the Eastern 250SX point standings. Momentum from early qualifying victories gave Tyler the push he needed entering into the second heat race. Riding aggressively throughout the race, he would finish the heat in 3rd and continue his momentum into the Main Event. In the Main, Tyler continuously rode strong as he climbed his way to the front of the pack. Finishing the night in 8th place, Tyler Bowers was able to grab valuable championship points in Indianapolis.

“Indy is always a technical track where you have to accept the deep ruts. My heat race went great with a third place finish and I was looking forward to the main event. Unfortunately, I spun off the gate and came around Turn 1 near the back of the pack. I put my head down and began making passes and came home with an eighth place. I’m Looking forward on improving next week.”
