With the recent news of Jordon Smith leaving Mitch Payton’s Pro Circuit Kawasaki team, it looks like that role will be filled by Team Green’s Jett Reynolds. Jett has been on the Team Green ride for over eight years and it looks like he will continue his two-wheel career onboard Kawasaki. It is unknown if he will head straight into A1 first with the team or wait till the East Coast rounds as the 2022 Supercross season kicks off but regardless of the team’s decision, it is pretty exciting to see this new wave of younger rides rising into the bigger picture. For Jordon Smith, we don’t have a confirmation on his plans for 2022, but we will update once it becomes available.

Two more Team Green riders whose contracts are up as of today, September 30th, are Eli Tomac and amateur rider, Chance Hymas. Eli Tomac is heading to the Star Racing Yamaha team and we expect a press release to announce this either Friday, October 1st, or possibly sometime next week. Chance Hymas has signed with the HRC Honda team and we expect him to contest in the amateur ranks for another season aboard a CRF250 before advancing to the Pros.

Scroll down below to read what Jett had to say about the promotion:

Jett Reynolds via Instagram: “I’d like to give a big thank you to Ryan Holliday for giving me the opportunity to ride for Team Green the last 8 years. It sure has been a wild ride with ups and downs, I’d also like to thank Jon Primo, Daniel Castloo, Chad Werner, and many others for the help and good times. Also my big brother, Joe Reynolds, for wrenching on my bikes all these years and keeping them mint for me. The time has come to an end for my amateur career, with that being said I’m beyond excited to start my professional career with Pro Circuit.”

While Jett Reynolds upgraded to the Pro Ranks, Pro Circuit Kawasaki will also be obtaining another amateur rider alongside Ryder DiFrancesco and Gavin Towers. Preston Boespflug has signed with the team for the rest of 2021 and 2022.

After having a rough 2021 Supercross season, Jordon Smith still left on a positive note:

Jordon Smith’s recent Supercross season was a rough one, crashing multiple times and eventually pulling out of the season. 

Jordon Smith via Instagram: “I want to take a second to say thank you to Mitch Payton and the entire Pro Circuit Race Team! It was one of the best opportunities of my life and I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to give it a better shot. We worked as hard as we could to make it happen but sometimes that’s just how the cookie crumbles. Thanks to all the sponsors and Race Kawasaki and Monster Energy!
Good luck to the team in the future!
Also a big thanks to both of my mechanics I had with the team. Brandon Zimmerman and Colter Ahrens you boys don’t get the credit you deserve. Thanks for all of the hard work!”

Good luck to both Jett Reynolds and Jordon Smith in the future and stay tuned as we attempt to stay up to date with all the million team changes coming for the 2022 season.
