Monster Energy Kawasaki Announces Signing of Eli Tomac
Posted : 29/10/2015
While it's been a well-known secret for months now, Kawasaki made the signing of Eli Tomac to its factory Team official at the 2015 AIMExpo in Orlando Florida. Tomac is recovering from a shoulder injury sustained during the 2015 motocross season and should be ready for the start of the Monster Energy Supercross season in January at Anaheim.
Tomac brings with him an impressive resume that includes a 250cc Supercross West Region Championship, a 250cc Motocross Championship, three AMA premier class Supercross race wins, 11 podium finishes, second overall in the 2015 AMA Monster Energy Supercross season and two overall wins, two overall podiums and five moto wins in the 2015 Pro Motocross season. The Monster Energy Kawasaki racing team has been the most dominant supercross and motocross team in the last decade with eight combined AMA titles.
"Joining Monster Energy Kawasaki has always been a goal and dream of mine," said Tomac. "I feel like with a bike and chassis as good as the KX, plus a team totally dedicated to the 450 class, we should be able to do big things in the near future. It’s a new team, new bike and a new year of racing. I can't wait to get back at it."
