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

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.”

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.”

Unfortunately I was tied up with another rider in Turn 1, but was able to charge through, ride my race and keep on my lines. I’m really happy with my fourth place finish and I’m looking forward to coming back from the break!”
