Kawasaki’s Josh Grant

Following his best-season ever in the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross Championship with Two-Two Motorsports Kawasaki – a now defunct team that was run by Chad Reed – Josh Grant sustained a knee injury at Thunder Valley Motocross.

Grant was sidelined since, and his future was uncertain. But on Tuesday, Monster Energy Kawasaki reported that it has signed Josh Grant to ride on the KX450F for the remainder of the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. This news comes after Wil Hahn was sidelined following a injury sustained in a practice crash at Spring Creek.

“We feel that Josh is going to fit in very well with our team,” said Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Manager, Dan Fahie. “Josh is very familiar with the KX450F which fits well with the short time frame we have to get him up to speed for Millville on Saturday.”

Grant comes to Monster Energy Kawasaki with one career overall win at Red Bud in 2009 and five overall Motocross podium finishes. He will remain with Monster Energy Kawasaki for the five remaining AMA nationals.

“This is a great opportunity for me and I want to thank everyone at Monster Energy Kawasaki for the chance to race again this year,” said Josh Grant. “I like the KX450F and I’m looking forward to getting the full support of the factory team behind me.”

The Monster Energy Kawasaki team will head to Millville, Minnesota for the Spring Creek National this weekend where Grant finished fifth overall in 2014.
