Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Jo Shimoda will line up this weekend in Seattle for the return of the Western Regional 250SX Championship at Lumen Field. Shimoda enjoyed a very successful break, returning to full health, and is ready to get in a solid race before the west is met with another couple of weekends off.
As is usual for the Pacific Northwest, rain is on the horizon for the race on Saturday. With conditions being a factor, Shimoda will try to take advantage of a wet track and use it in his favor. Only four races remain for the Western Regional 250SX riders and Shimoda plans on using each gate drop to move up the point’s standings.
“Jo is fit, healthy, and eager to get to racing again. We’ve made some good progress with the bike in the last few weeks on the East coast. Jo will have those updated parts for Seattle. We know Jo is capable of winning and that’s what we’ll be expecting out of him. Hopefully the rain stays away and we have a good racing surface.” – Iain Southwell, Team Manager.
