Monster Energy Kawasaki Adds Davalos to 2018 Roster
After earning the AMA Motocross Manufacturer of the Year Award for the second consecutive time, Monster Energy Kawasaki will have a team of familiar faces and the addition of Martin Davalos as the Green team look to continue their winning ways in 2018.

Kawasaki had a successful year in Monster Energy AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross in both classes, accruing two championships and 24 event wins, a dominating 41% of the total number of events. For 2018 the Monster Energy Kawasaki roster will once again feature Eli Tomac and Josh Grant.

"Looking into 2018, we have a great team on and off the track," said Monster Energy Kawasaki Senior Manager, Dan Fahie. "All of our riders have won races and I believe this year will be no different. I'm looking forward to the new season and the success that lies ahead."

Josh Grant will once again join Tomac on the 450 squad.
Fresh off of winning the 450MX Championship, Tomac is looking forward to continuing working with the team and keeping the momentum going for the Monster Energy Cup into the upcoming year. After a few weeks off, Tomac will return to the gate in Las Vegas on October 14th donning the No. 1 plate and look to defend his 2016 Monster Energy Cup Championship.

Marking his third year with the team, Tomac relentlessly proves to be a top contender in the premier class after his substantial success in 2017. Along with the Pro Motocross Championship Tomac added nine moto wins in motocross and nine main event wins in supercross to his impressive r̩sum̩, and earned an overall podium at MXGP of USA.

Grant finished the supercross season in the top 10, confirming he is still a strong contender after 10 years in the premier class. After a solid start to the motocross season with multiple podium finishes, Grant was forced to end his season early after only competing in six rounds due to injury. Grant has since recovered and has been putting in laps as he prepares to join his teammate on the line at the Monster Energy Cup.

Returning to the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki race team for 2018 are Adam Cianciarulo, Joey Savatgy and Austin Forkner. The team also welcomes the return of Martin Davalos to compete in the 250 class.

Davalos last competed for Pro Circuit in 2014 where he captured two main event wins and brings over 10 years of experience in the AMA to round out the four-rider roster of championship contenders. The young crew consistently proves they are a force to be reckoned with based on the multiple feats they accomplished this year. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team secured the 2017 250SX West Region Championship, marking the 30th AMA championship plate they have hung on the door of their race transporter.
