Kawasaki Addresses Invitation to ATV Open

 Morgantown, WV β€” Team Green and Monster Energy Kawasaki responds to three riders Josh Creamer, Josh Upperman and Jason Luburgh being chosen for the ATV Open Invitational at Steel City. Team Green Manager Reid Nordin Reid, what are your thoughts on the ATV Open? RN: I think the Open has potential to be an outstanding event, and that's why we decided to attend with our team. How do your riders stack up against the top ATVA Pros, in your opinion? RN: Our riders have accomplished a great deal in their young careers and they will continue to improve each race they attend. The Monster Energy Kawasaki team has a solid group of riders with an outstanding team effort that has come a long way in just a short period of time. In the four and a half months since the KFX450 hit the showroom floors, we have been able to make an impact at the racetrack in a short time, and we are pleased with the progress of the riders and the team. Any predictions on the event, or what will happen as a result? RN: This is a unique format with both AMA Pro Motocross and AMA Pro ATV riders racing the same track on the same weekend. It is going to be a learning experience for all involved, and I hope our guys can put on a good show for the fans. Monster Energy Kawasaki ATV Team Manager Jimmy White Jimmy, how do you feel about the ATV Open? JW: We're all excited to be able to show what the ATV guys are able to do on the same track as the two wheel guys. The ATV riders look up to the professionalism of the bike teams and riders. What do you think about the format compared to the bikes? JW: As far as the format, I think it will be good for this one time event. We should be running heats also, but we understand this is a trial event to see how things go. Now if your talking about a format sharing with the bike guys on the same weekend, then it would be good to give the fans a bigger bang for their bucks. They will enjoy watching what these quads are capable of doing. Any predictions for the event? JW: Of course, it will be a Green rider.
