Justin Hill to race selected 450SX races

Posted:

Defending 250 Western Regional Supercross Champion Justin Hill will contest select 450 Supercross races to gain valuable development time and provide 450 class experience starting this Saturday night at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

Coming off a victory at the San Diego Supercross on his Suzuki RM-Z250, the Autotrader, Yoshimura, Suzuki Factory Racing rider is looking to build off the momentum as the 250 West series takes a break from action.

"I'm ultra-psyched to have this opportunity," Hill enthused. "I've been waiting a long time to ride the all-new Suzuki RM-Z450, and that‰Ûªs what our deal entails for next year. To get my feet wet is crucial, not just for racing, but also in getting some development time logged. We‰Ûªve already made a lot of great setting choices on the bike and I‰Ûªm learning a lot,‰Û

Suzuki Factory Racing Team Manager Jeremy Albrecht is looking forward to seeing Hill race on the RM-Z450 beginning this weekend. "We're excited to have Hill on the 450. He‰Ûªs brimming with confidence after coming off a win before the break in the 250 West series. We‰Ûªll use these next few 450 rounds as development for 2019. We will go on a race-by-race basis, and then he will get back to riding the RM-Z250 to finish out the year strong."
