Team regular Hill recovering from shoulder injury.
JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing has drafted in Kyle Chisholm for this weekend’s fourth round of the 2019 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship at High Point, filling in for injured regular Justin Hill.
Hill, who is currently ranked 12th in the championship standings, injured his shoulder last weekend during a training session, prompting to squad to call in Chisholm, who will compete on a round-by-round basis on his Suzuki RM-Z450 while Hill recovers.
Chisholm is no stranger to the RM-Z450, as the 31-year-old contested the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series with the HEP Motorsports Suzuki team, earning eight top-15 finishes. Chisholm also has prior experience racing for the JGRMX squad during several supercross rounds in 2013.
“I’m super excited, because I really wanted to race outdoors,” said Chisholm. “I was in the process of putting a plan together to do at least half of the Nationals. I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to get out there and race. I can’t wait to line up on the JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 and have some fun.”
The factory Suzuki team currently fields Alex Martin and Kyle Peters in the 250MX division, where the pair are ranked eighth and 20th in the standings.
