Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Look For A Big Weekend Before Western Regional Break2018-02-07 16:23
Riders Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo have both proven they can achieve podium finishes and Savatgy a victory, but the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team is eyeing a double podium this weekend during Round 6 at Petco Park in San Diego. It will be the duo’s last chance before heading on an eight week break as the Eastern Regional 250SX class premiers on February 17. With the championship five rounds in, Savatgy sits eight points out of the lead in second, while Cianciarulo is fourth.
Savatgy picked up his second runner-up finish of the season in Oakland, climbing the point’s standings to second overall. He rode a smart and calculated race on Saturday in tough conditions, boosting his confidence as the series heads to San Diego.
“I obviously want to win every weekend, but we adapt to the challenges of the track and thankfully we were able to battle back last weekend and get second,” said Savatgy. “I have to come up with a win to help my chances at this title and I know we are capable with the great team I have backing me up. I just need to go out and execute.”
Cianciarulo had one of those races that he would like to quickly forget in Oakland, allowing him to focus forward on the task of earning his first win of the season this weekend in San Diego. His seventh in Oakland didn’t tell of the speed he showcased on a deteriorating track, giving him confidence in his ability to contest for the win this weekend.
“The speed is there and my confidence is still there with the best bike out on the track,” said Cianciarulo. “I just have to focus on a good start to be there from the beginning of the race. I felt good in Oakland despite the first lap. The start will be pretty critical this week in such a small stadium so we’ll be working on that.”
Prior to Saturday’s race, the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders will be signing autographs on Friday, February 9 from 6 - 7 p.m. at Southbay Motorsports in San Diego.
Saturday’s race from Petco Park will be broadcast live on FS1 or the FOX Sports GO app starting at 10 p.m. ET.
