Multi-Year partners of Pro Circuit Racing team

We are proud to be multi-year partners with the Pro Circuit Racing team! We’re looking forward to an exciting new season of racing, especially with the new Supercross format!

The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki squad is prepped and ready for the opening round of the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross series, starting Saturday, January 6 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. The first round kicks off new elements to the 250SX Class including two East/West shootout races.

Following the team’s 20th supercross championship last season in the Western Regional class, the four-rider lineup of Adam Cianiciarulo (#92), Austin Forkner (#35), Joey Savatgy (#17) and Martin Davalos (#29) have been gearing up to add to that number with back-to-back championship seasons.

Team By The Numbers

Between all four riders, there is a collective 13 supercross wins and 38 additional podium finishes.

Cianciarulo has earned five wins in just 15 starts with four additional podium finishes.

Savatgy and Davalos both have four wins each to their credit.

Last year in his first supercross season, Forkner raced to four top-five results with two of those being podium finishes.

Savatgy’s four seasons racing Supercross (didn’t race in 2014) he has accumulated 11 additional podiums on top of his four wins.

In his last term with Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki, Davalos competed in 15 supercross races earning two wins and eight additional podiums.

Cianciarulo and Savatgy Finish in Top-10 at MetLife Stadium

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (April 30, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo and Joey Savatgy both attained top-10 finishes at the penultimate round of the Eastern Regional 250SX championship, ending the night fourth and eighth, respectively. With only one round remaining, Savatgy is just one point off the leader, while Cianciarulo is fourth and 14 points out.

Adam Cianciarulo
For Cianciarulo, the night started out right as he collected his third heat-race win of the season. He was ready for the gate drop in the main event and grabbed his third holeshot of the season. Cianciarulo was riding well, but forfeited a few spots before the checkered flag where he ended up finishing just off the podium in fourth.

“The day started pretty good and I’m always happy to get a heat race win,” said Cianciarulo. “I really wish I was able to hold on to the lead in the main, but the track was tricky and there were certain sections that if you didn’t get it just right, you lost time. I have one more round to get that second win and we’ll be trying our hardest.”

Joey Savatgy
Savatgy was focused and ready to tackle the tough track in New Jersey. He finished fourth in his heat race and started well in the main event. After settling into third, Savatgy went down, but remounted quickly. He crossed the line in third, but eventually was assessed a penalty and was pushed down to eighth. With his decent sized lead entering the round, he sits only one point out of the lead with the final round taking place next weekend in Las Vegas.

“I don’t give up and after barely losing last year, I won’t go down without a fight,” said Savatgy. “This week, we’ll keep our heads down and work hard to come to Las Vegas at our best.”

Hill Scores Second Place To Keep Double Digit Point’s Lead

SEATTLE (April 9, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Justin Hill rode a consistent race on a continually changing track inside CenturyLink Field to finish second, allowing him to retain his double digit point’s lead with two rounds remaining. Hill’s teammate Austin Forkner did not race after enduring a hip injury in practice leading up to the event. He’s being evaluated on a week-by-week basis.

Justin Hill 
The day was nearly perfect for Hill who collected the top qualifier and another heat race win on a cold night in Seattle. Hill, who is from Yoncalla, Oregon, looked unfazed by the challenging track and let that confidence shine in the main event.

Because of the conditions the main event was knocked down to 12 minutes and after working his way up into the top five, the main event was red flagged for an injured rider. The racers were forced to complete a full restart, but it benefited Hill who started a bit better and quickly made his way into second by the second lap. He would be challenged for the position, but would ultimately settle into the runner-up spot and ride a smooth race to finish second on the night.

“I just fell into the groove and tried to ride safe because the track was just unreal,” said Hill. “I did what I could do to ride solid and not throw it away. I would love to have won, but didn’t feel like I needed to do anything that would cost me points.”

Joey Savatgy Retains Points Lead Going Into Break

ST. LOUIS (April 2, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy kept the Eastern Regional 250SX points lead heading into the short break after collecting his fourth-straight runner-up finish at The Dome at America’s Center. His teammate Adam Cianciarulo finished sixth and is 18 points back of his teammate in the standings.

Joey Savatgy
The day as a whole was really encouraging for Savatgy who came into the night event as the top qualifier. He captured another heat race win aboard his Kawasaki KX250F and put himself in good position for the main. During the crucial main event, Savatgy got a great start and charged into the lead not long after the start. He encountered some mistakes, but despite going off the track and getting hit by a lapper he managed to charge at the leader until the end, finishing just 0.6 seconds back of the winner.

“We are leaving here healthy and have the red plate so that is always good,” said Savatgy. “The little mistakes are frustrating but the speed is there. The starts have been there, which is encouraging, so we’ll see what we can do after the break.”

Adam Cianciarulo
Cianciarulo was proving his speed both during the day’s practice and the night show. After collecting third in his heat, he got a nice start in the main event to put him in the top-five. He battled and didn’t give up the entire 15 minutes plus one lap main event to finish sixth on the night.

“I had a pretty good crash in second practice and I feel like it hindered me when we went to the night show,” said Cianciarulo. “I couldn’t get in a grove and the track was challenging so it didn’t turn out how I wanted. We have some time off and we’ll regroup.”

The riders on the East Coast will get a short break before returning to action on April 29 for the penultimate round of the season. Justin Hill and Austin Forkner return to action next weekend in Seattle.

Joey Savatgy Regains Points Lead in Detroit

DETROIT (March 26, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo were main players in one of the wildest races this season, with Savatgy earning his third-straight runner-up finish while Cianciarulo was third. In addition to grabbing his fourth podium of the season, Savatgy regained the point’s lead and sits nine points ahead of second. Cianciarulo moved to fourth in the standings and is 11 points back of his teammate.

Joey Savatgy
Coming into the evening, Savatgy clocked in the second-fastest lap time in qualifying on the slick and tricky track. He rode through the pack in his heat race to finish second. In the main event, Savatgy got a great start and was in the hunt for the lead, taking over the top spot on Lap 3. He ended up going down but got going again in third, staying with the front pack. Savatgy traded positions with second and third a few times before finishing less than a second behind the winner. Savatgy ended the night claiming the coveted red plate and a nice cushion between him and second place, nine points back.

“The points lead is good, but frustrated for sure because that win was within my grasp,” said Savatgy. “In the main, I put myself in position and had a little gap in the lead and made a mistake. Once I got back into my groove, I caught back up and almost won. So my speed there is encouraging and we’re really happy to leave with the points lead.”

Adam Cianciarulo
Like Savatgy, Cianciarulo was able to charge the track in practice and come away with third in qualifying. He won his second heat race of the season in impressive fashion. The good gate pick helped him shoot out to the main event holeshot, leading the first few laps before briefly going down. He remounted in fourth and started his race back to the front. Even with a time gap, Cianciarulo charged and passed for the podium spot with two laps to go.

“I feel good with the result after not getting much riding in this week with my knee injury last week,” said Cianciarulo. “I put myself in a good position tonight and coming out of here we are optimistic as we closed the points gap. Couldn’t be more excited to have a shot at the championship and it’s looking like this thing will go down to Vegas.”

Savatgy Remains In The Hunt With Indianapolis Runner-Up Finish

INDIANAPOLIS (March 19, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy earned his second consecutive runner-up finish, helping him stay in the hunt for the championship after five of nine rounds. Teammate Adam Cianciarulo overcame an issue in practice to rebound for a fifth in the main event and still holding on to third in the championship standings.

Joey Savatgy
Savatgy came into the night event as the top qualifier ready to showcase his speed in the heat and main event. He raced well in the heat race where he finished third. When the gate dropped for the main event, it was another Pro Circuit holeshot as Savatgy led the field around the first corner, settling into the lead. He maintained the top spot until he was basically hit and passed around the halfway point of the race. Savatgy didn’t give up and narrowly missed the top spot, finishing just 2 seconds back of the winner.

“We made some progress tonight, but I didn’t feel like I got into my groove until later in the race,” said Savatgy. “I got a little tight and after Zach (Osborne) went by, I got into a better rhythm and did my best to find an opportunity. We still have three big races left in the season and I’m ready to push until the end.”

Adam Cianciarulo
Cianciarulo came into the round with newfound confidence, but was forced to overcome adversity after going down in second practice and finding himself with less track time going into the night show. He was able to ride to a solid third-place finish in his heat, putting him in good position for the main event. He stared the 15-minute main event in sixth and as the leader pack rode away, Cianciarulo was able to move into fifth. He put in a solid effort, and finished the night in fifth.

“The day was decent considering how it started with the mishap in practice,” said Cianciarulo. “Overall the result – I don’t like getting fifth place, but considering the circumstances and not feeling 100 percent, I feel like we salvaged a lot of points.”

Cianciarulo Wins First Supercross Since 2014

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (March 12, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo ascended to the top step of the podium almost three years to the date of his last supercross win in 2014, leading wire-to-wire in his hometown race at Daytona International Speedway. After recovering from injuries the past three years, Cianciarulo finally felt vindication taking his fourth career victory. The podium celebration was even sweeter as teammate Joey Savatgy made it a 1-2 Pro Circuit domination with the duo crossing the finish line over 10 seconds ahead of the third place.

Adam Cianciarulo
Leading into the main event, Cianciarulo rode consistently as he qualified third in practice and came out of his heat in fourth. When the gate dropped for the 250SX main event, both Cianciarulo and Savatgy jumped to the front with Cianciarulo taking over the lead just a few corners in. He never looked back, rode hard the entire 15 laps and came away with his fourth career victory.

“Getting hurt a few times in a row can make you have those doubts [if you’ll win again],” said Cianciarulo. “It’s hard to come from the bottom and get back to the top. It’s the accumulation of so many people, so many hours of work that have pushed me to get here. It’s hard to describe but it’s an incredible feeling to be back on the podium.”

Joey Savatgy
Like Cianciarulo, Savatgy had good speed as he came into the main event, qualifying second and coming through the pack in his heat race to finish third. When the riders shot out of the gate, it was Savatgy who grabbed the holeshot and led the field around the first turn. After being overtaken by his teammate, Savatgy stayed right on him, not giving him much breathing room as he tried to get close enough to make a pass. He eventually settled for second but made up valuable points in the championship where he now sits just six points back.

“The last few weekends have been tough and it’s really nice to be back on the podium,” said Savatgy. “We gained some good points in the championship and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I try each week to get better and I think this was a good weekend for us.”

Cianciarulo Breaks Through for First Podium of the Season

TORONTO (March 5, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo raced to the podium for the first time this season, giving him the needed confidence boost as the series took over the Rogers Centre in Canada. His efforts helped propel him to a tie for third in the championship standings. Teammate Joey Savatgy was in podium position, but he went down late in the race and that pushed him down the charts to sixth.

Adam Cianciarulo
Cianciarulo returned to the site of his 2014 season-ending crash looking to not only overcome his past, but have his best night of the season. After finishing second in his heat race, Cianciarulo worked hard to get a good start and was aggressive in the opening lap to start in fourth. He minimized his mistakes, which kept him close to the front-runners. When the 15 minutes plus one lap was complete, Cianciarulo finished the night as the runner-up.

“I’ve definitely been through a lot to get back here [on the podium],” said Cianciarulo. “This is a really good step for me. It was a night where I didn’t necessarily feel my best so I’m happy with the end result. I’ve gone through a lot to get back here so I’m stoked and thankful to be here.”

Joey Savatgy
Savatgy showcased his speed throughout the day. He qualified third and then went onto finish fourth in his heat race. When the gate dropped for the main event, it was Savatgy who took the holeshot and raced back and forth for the lead. He settled into second around Lap 7, but with just a few laps remaining, Savatgy miscalculated a rhythm section and went down. He quickly remounted his Kawasaki KX250F and was able to still come across the finish in sixth.

“The biggest thing I need to do is to minimize mistakes,” said Savatgy. “It’s frustrating because I feel like we’re prepared and we come in ready. I’m really looking forward to a little redemption next week.”

Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Comes Through The Pack

Atlanta (February 25, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo worked through mid-pack starts to finish fourth and seventh, respectively, during one of the final events that will take place inside the Georgia Dome. With two races out of nine complete, Savatgy sits second and only two points back in the championship standings, while Cianciarulo is currently fifth.

Joey Savatgy
Savatgy entered the night show as the top qualifier after posting the fastest time in practice. He raced to a second-place finish in his heat race, giving him a nice gate pick going into the main event. The start was a bit tricky and chaotic, leaving Savatgy to come around the first lap in eighth. He had worked his way into fifth by the halfway mark, eventually picking off one more rider before the checkered flag where he finished fourth.

“We struggled a little bit today and not getting the start in the main definitely made it for a tougher race than I wanted,” said Savatgy. “We are just two points back with seven rounds still to go so there is a lot of racing left. My goal is to be on the podium every race so I’m looking to get back up there next weekend.”

Adam Cianciarulo
Cianciarulo started the night earning his third career heat-race win. After the first lap of the main event, Cianciarulo sat close to the front-runners in fourth. He was staying with the pack but had a quick tip over and then was forced off the track trying to avoid a crash in front of him. When he was able to rejoin, he was pushed back to 10th and had to work hard again to move through the pack. Cianciarulo used the final laps to move into seventh, where he finished.

“I feel like I’ve been making some silly rookie mistakes, but I know that will come around when I get some more racing under my belt,” said Cianciarulo. “Even with the mistakes that I made, I do think my racing is coming along after so much time away from supercross.”

Jake Weimer in first top-10 JGRMX

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex. Was host to round six of the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship. A huge crowd of 57,807 fans were on hand and Fox Sports One broadcast the event in its entirety.

Phillip Nicoletti crashed during Press Day activities on Friday injuring his left ankle and heel. Nicoletti contests the 250SX West division, which now takes a break until April 8 during which time the 250SX East division competes. Nicoletti will be evaluated this week and his estimated recovery time will be subsequently updated. Weston Peick suffered a hard crash in the first practice session in Phoenix lacerating his kidney and breaking his wrist. Peick underwent successful wrist surgery and is in the process of healing, he is expected to miss at least several weeks of racing. Jake Weimer continues to substitute for Justin Barcia, also recovering from a wrist injury sustained just before the opening round of the series. With Barcia’s return expected very soon the team will not hire a substitute for Peick, however Weimer will continue as a replacement rider, this time for Peick until he returns to competition. Lastly, Matt Bisceglia, who was scheduled to start the 250SX East Series this Saturday, Feb. 18 needs at least one more week recuperating from an injury to his foot, Kyle Peters will ride in place of Bisceglia in Minneapolis.

Weimer transferred to the Main Event by winning the LCQ after contact with another rider in Semi Two caused him to crash while in a qualifying position. He began the Main Event in 14th position and started to advance through the field. As the laps wound down Weimer had worked his way to seventh, which is where he finished claiming his first top-10 and best finish of the season to date.
