Chad Reed is in Australia this weekend for the 2019 AUS-X Open, and during the pre-race press conference the 37-year-old former two time 450 Supercross Champion announced that the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season will be the curtain call on his legendary career. The #22 said that 2020 will be his final season.
When asked about his 2020 sponsorship deal, Chad said: “Mountain Motorsports have been amazing with helping and supporting everything I’ve been doing lately. The goal is to go racing and I feel confident we’ll make that work. Sponsors and how we look and feel is all a moving target. I’m excited! 2020 will be my final season. So it’s a big one. I’m excited. I need a race this weekend for that reason. I think to do it this long and to see where the sport’s been and to be at this stadium—I’m just excited for everyone involved.”
2020 will be Reedy’s 18th year at Anaheim 1 in the premier class and what an amazing career it has been for the Australian. He also went on to say this will be his last appearance racing in Australia as a full-time racer so I’m sure the fans will appreciate seeing their local hero in action one last time.
