Chad Reed and JGR Suzuki have confirmed Reed is racing the final round of the US National championship this weekend.
If he does well of course it could look bad on Michael Byrne, who hasn’t chosen Reed for the MXoN team that will compete at Red Bud this October.
Reed said: “ I feel like a kid again getting to ride a factory bike. I have those nervous and excited feelings to be getting back out there.”

#Repost @jgrmx ・・・ It’s official! @crtwotwo to race the final round of the @promotocross series at Ironman Raceway on Saturday! In Chad’s own words: “The opportunity came up last week for me to test the Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki RM-Z450. I immediately felt comfortable with the bike and team. Although I had not planned to be in ‘race shape’ for another six weeks, it’s an opportunity to get out and do what I absolutely love the most, which is race. I haven’t raced a National in three years, but I have those nervous and excited race feelings to be getting back out there. I’m stoked to help their team and sponsors while a few of their riders are out with injuries. I feel like a kid again getting to ride a factory bike and go racing with a highly motivated crew. I hope to see lots of 22 fans this weekend!” #jgrmx #rmarmy #promotocross #thisismoto
