When Justin Hill stunk up the first four 250 West rounds, the naysayers were saying that he had made a mistake by leaving the Pro Circuit Kawasaki team for JGR Suzuki, but what they didn’t know was that Justin will most likely point out of the 250 Supercross class in 2018. So, when Joe Gibbs offered him a guaranteed 450 ride for 2019 (if he raced the 250 West in 2018), he move to JGR. It is highly unlikely that Team Kawasaki would have ever given Justin a 450 deal—so, he made the smart move. Even smarter now that he has won a 250 event for Suzuki.
