Monster Energy Kawasaki typically kicks off the racing season with an introduction at its Irvine, California, facilities just prior to the first Supercross race of the year. This year was no different, as Kawasaki invited the media and its employees to meet team riders, take race shop tours and show off a video showcasing the team.

Industry announcer Jason Weigandt hosted the opening ceremonies, introduced the individual riders, and commenced the official announcement of the 2011 Monster Energy Kawasaki Race Teams.
