Rattray to Make Monster Energy Cup Debut

2012-07-19 15:29
Feld Motor Sports® announced today that Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Tyla Rattray, who came to the U.S. from South Africa, will race the second annual Monster Energy Cup at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on October 20.

Rattray, 26, won the 2008 MX2 Class in the FIM World Championships before coming to the U.S. He opened the 2012 Western Regional Supercross Lites Class with two consecutive podium finishes and an additional fourth-place finish. During his Heat Race at the Oakland stop of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship, Rattray suffered an injury that placed him on the sidelines for the remainder of the season.

“I think this year will be even better,” said Rattray. “With a million dollars on the line … there is no space for error. I think it will be good – also – for the fans to come out there and see all of those good guys racing for it (the $1 million).”
