Suzuki Announces BarX/Chaparral Racing as its 250 Supercross Team for 2022

Suzuki’s 250-class Supercross effort continues to be led by the BarX/Chaparral Racing team in 2022. The BarX/Chaparral team demonstrated strong performance in the amateur ranks in the past, and also achieved promising results last year, the team’s first in the 250-pro series. Team Manager Larry Brooks will field an impressive group of strident Suzuki athletes as they challenge for podiums and in 2022.

“BarX and Suzuki have worked very successfully in building top amateur race programs before BarX stepped up last year to full-season pro-class racing,” said Larry Brooks Team Manager of the BarX/Chaparral Suzuki Team. “We took a lot of positive steps throughout 2021, and we’re very excited to continue as the 250-program for Suzuki. BarX is focused and dedicated to competing with the best and ensuring the RM-Z250 is in the mix for victories when the gate drops for the 2022 season.”

The BarX/Chaparral Suzuki team features a deep line-up of four proven, young riders including Dilan Schwartz, Derek Drake, Preston Kilroy, and Carson Mumford. Drake and Kilroy will handle the East Coast series, with Schwartz and Mumford focusing on West Coast rounds.

Schwartz is looking forward to further improving his consistency from 2021; while Drake is looking forward to a full 2022 season after a medical setback interrupted his 2021 efforts. Kilroy returns full-time to BarX after a hugely promising 2021 campaign on the sharp-handling RM-Z250. Kilroy achieved impressive podium results at Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Motocross National Championships on Suzuki. Rounding out the 2022 BarX/Chaparral effort is Simi Valley, CA’s Carson Mumford, who joins the BarX/Chaparral Suzuki team for his third season in the pro ranks. The BarX/Chaparral Suzuki team will compete on the 2022 Suzuki RM-Z250, and count on the additional support of the Suzuki RM Army program.
