Tough Finish
It’s a big bummer,” said Bowers after the Houston main event. “I love racing and love my entire Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki  team, which is why it makes it so difficult to force myself to sit on the sidelines.”

Bowers has been dealing with a lingering back issue since the start of the season.  He was able to push through the first six rounds, but over the break he determined he would need back surgery to repair a lower lumbar issue.  He had scheduled the surgery for May and was prepared to sit out the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, but the effects were too severe for him to conquer and finish Saturday night’s main event.  Bowers will sit out the remaining Supercross rounds and looks to move up his surgery to resolve the issue.

Best Finish Yet
“I get paid to be battling at the front,” said Alldredge.  “Although we made progress tonight, I am still not where I want to be nor where the team and this amazing bike should be.  I need to step it up even further next week in Santa Clara.”

Alldredge has been making great headway in his rookie season aboard his Kawasaki KX250F in the Monster Energy Supercross series.  Often with the speed to win, he was lacking experience at running at a championship pace throughout the race.  In Houston, Alldredge concentrated on improving his consistency and it resulted in his best career finish in ninth place.
