“We’ve had a trying year in Supercross with a lot of injuries,” said Pro Circuit owner, Mitch Payton. “When we heard Tyler was available to help us, we were really excited because he is a proven champion and will be a strong addition to the team.”
Bowers finished a career best of sixth overall in the 2008 250SX Eastern Regional points standings including multiple top-five finishes amongst a stacked class that included Ryan Villopoto. He then took on the Arenacross series with Kawasaki.
While leading the standings in 2010, he severely broke both legs in a crash, costing him the championship and almost his career. Bowers overcame adversity and returned in 2011 to win the Arenacross championship and has won every year since.
“Tyler is the perfect fit for us and we expect him to excel,” said Kawasaki Senior Racing Manager, Reid Nordin. “We have a long standing relationship with him and he has proven himself time and time again. He is at-home on his Kawasaki will easily make the transition to Supercross.”
Bowers will make his debut with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas for Round 13 of Monster Energy Supercross.
