Kyle Peters will occupy a seat at the Autotrader/Suzuki/JGRMX team for the opening two rounds of the 2017 East Coast 250SX Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship.

Suffering a pre-season leg injury, team regular, Matt Bisceglia, will be absent from the Minneapolis and Atlanta rounds and the Jeremy Albrecht-managed squad will enlist Peters’ services to fill that position.

Currently contracted with the Wilson Coolair Motul Suzuki team to contest the entire Australian motocross and supercross calendar, it is understood the American’s Australian plans will remain unchanged following the fill-in appearances with the factory-backed team.

Peters will make his first appearance with the Autotrader/Suzuki/JGRMX team next weekend on 18 February as the east series kicks off inside U.S Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
