josh grant joins mdk motorsports

PATASKALA, Ohio — MDK Motorsports, led by entrepreneur team owner Mark Kvamme and managed by former Supercross rider Jamey Grosser, announced its final three riders to compete alongside two-time World Supercross champion Chad Reed in the FIM World Supercross Championship.

All the action begins on Oct. 8 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales where MDK boasts a talented group of premier and up-and-coming riders, competing for an FIM-sanctioned world championship.

Led by Reed who provides a level of championship leadership and experience few riders in the history of Supercross can, MDK Motorsports will field an extremely competitive group of riders each bringing the experience and skill necessary to compete at a World Championship level.

Reed will ride in the WSX (450cc) class with Josh Grant, a Southern California native with almost two decades of professional experience. Grant’s résumé includes numerous podiums in American Supercross and motocross, including multiple victories.

“This is a lineup stacked with veteran experience and incredible skill – guys who’ve raced at the highest level and know exactly what it takes to win,” said Kvamme. “Chad and Josh were teammates over the years and there’s a valuable level of trust and mutual respect between them, while Justin and Derek will be a formidable pairing to push the field in SX2. This is a tight group, and we couldn’t be more excited for the first race in Cardiff next month.”

MDK Motorsport’s SX2 (250cc) class features Cushing, Oklahoma’s Justin Bogle, a 10-year motocross and Supercross veteran with four career victories across 450cc and 250cc classes.

Rounding out the team and joining Bogle in the SX2 class is Derek Drake from Central California. Making his professional motocross debut in 2019, and his supercross debut in 2020, Drake is a talented, up-and-coming rider looking to break out globally in the WSX series. His talent, drive and dedication will be complemented by the incredible experience and leadership of his three teammates as they tackle the global stage in WSX.

In a unique move to supercross teams, MDK motorsports has also retained back up rider Henry Miller.  Miller is a long-time top privateer of Supercross and motocross and will be available in a moment’s notice if needed.
