The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team is pleased to announce an agreement with Kyle Peters for the 2018 Supercross season.

Kyle Peters will be a familiar face around the Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing 250 team semi this upcoming year, as the 24-year-old filled in at three rounds of the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250 Eastern regional series. The friendly Greensboro, N.C. native finished inside the top ten at every race during his short stint. Since turning Pro in 2011, Peters has earned podium and top-five finishes in Supercross. Kyle’s talent, experience and professionalism are vital assets to a race program that is revamping its 250 factory effort.

“I have always wanted to ride for a factory team, and I’m so thankful to get the opportunity with the Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team. What makes it more special is that JGRMX is based in my home state of North Carolina,” stated Kyle Peters. “I was fortunate enough to ride for the team during several rounds of the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250 Eastern regional series. The crew members and I immediately hit it off. In the past few months I have been wearing out [team manager] Jeremy Albrecht’s cell phone, calling to see if he had a slot open. I am beyond excited that things worked out. I can’t wait to put in the effort and make 2018 the best year of my career yet.”

Jeremy Albrecht, the Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing team, was easily persuaded into selecting Kyle Peters for a coveted position on the 250 team. “First and foremost, Kyle Peters is a really good kid. Having worked with him for a few races this year, I learned that Kyle is the type of rider who understands what needs to be done on the racetrack. He wants to succeed. Off the track, he has an easy-going demeanor and gets along with everyone in the rig. Kyle also understands the importance of maintaining strong relationships with sponsors.”

Kyle Peters will join Jimmy Decotis and 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250 Western Regional Champion Justin Hill on the Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing 250 Team for 2018. There is one slot is left to fill. Expect an announcement in the coming weeks. For more team news, please visit www.jgrmxraceteam.com.

They have the defending 250SX West champ?

Out of the rider's available who do you think they should (1 spot left) or should have signed?

Hill is overrated and does nothing outdoors. Suzuki had a ton of young talent in Europe and with knowing they wouldn’t be bck this year there’s no reason jgr couldn’t get at least one of Jeremy, jasikonas or hunter. Tons of young talent gone it’s a joke and jgr ends up these guys. Sorry very underwhelming and just a huge disgrace the last couple months it has been as a Suzuki fan. Half ass from new bike down to teams. just leave the industry if this is what they’re going to do

Hill may have thrown in the towel this outdoor season but previously he had top 5 results with Troy Lee, so the potential is there at least.

Your other options have serious problems of their own. Hunter Lawrence signed a multi-year deal with Honda already and is heading to Geico in 2019. Jeremy Sewer apparently wanted to stay in the GPs and is eyeing a factory Yamaha spot. Jasikonas is 8 feet tall and as far as I know 0 SX experience. So that's pretty underwhelming too.

So is Peters going to fill the SX/MX spot? Or is he just SX?

Washed up moto and enduro weekend warrior.

Bowers. Only 2 of the 250 guys will race outdoors anyway

Bowers won't be getting the spot, check his twitter comment.

The last spot, which is probably a SX only spot, would likely be Phil Nicoletti (who would go 450 outdoors)...he's already riding the 250 again at their track.

More so the lack of experience in SX, who knows if he would have even been interested. But it's unusual to put a dude over 6'5" onto a 250F. It didn't work out that great for Benny Bloss.

I agree.

Lets go back almost 1 year and listen to the Pulp MX show that he did. Same kind of attitude. Speaking so highly of himself, laughing at some offers he had at the table etc. Well how did it go for him in 2017? He got 1 top 10 finish?

I like to see him on the track and i hope he finds a ride but spare me the whining.

Good for Kyle, should be a solid top 15 guy
