The Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing Team have announced that two-time 450 Supercross champion Chad Reed will contest the Monster Energy Cup on Saturday, October 13th.

Reed will be racing a Suzuki RM-Z450 and vying for the $1 million bonus of winning the richest Supercross race in the sport.

Reed contested the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship finale at Ironman Raceway for the team. The 36-year-old holeshot a moto and finished 5-8 for eighth overall and has since spent several weeks testing the Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450 at JGRMX‰Ûªs Supercross track in North Carolina.

The Australian is in great form and very comfortable on the Suzuki RM-Z450. This led to the mutual decision between rider and team to contest the Monster Energy Cup. Fourth on the all-time Supercross wins list, with 44 Main Event victories, Reed is eager to make a statement on the hybrid-style Supercross track.

‰ÛÏMy experience with the team at the Ironman National was awesome." Reed reflected. "The race went better than I personally thought it would, because I wasn‰Ûªt in 100 percent race shape. I achieved my personal goals.

"Since that time, I have continued to work with the team and help test the Suzuki RM-Z450. I‰Ûªm enjoying the bike and team. I am looking forward to racing the Monster Energy Cup.‰Û

‰ÛÏChad Reed has been outstanding to work with. He has proven to be a valued addition to our testing program with the Suzuki RM-Z450." Albrecht commented. "I‰Ûªm eager to see Reed race in Las Vegas, and I think we will turn heads. This should be fun.‰Û
