Monster Energy Kawasaki has confirmed that Tyler Bowers will race under the factory tent at the 2018 Tampa Supercross, the eighth round of the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Series. This news comes days after Josh Grant broke his lower leg at the 2018 Arlington Supercross when he mistimed a rhythm section and overshot the landing of a jump.
The relationship between Bowers and Monster Energy Kawasaki is nothing new, as the team has helped Bowers with suspension and parts during his early run as a privateer.
A return date to action for Grant his leg injury is not yet confirmed, so as of now, Bowers will likely be week to week with the factory team.
