Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Eyeing Championship Supercross Season Starting with Anaheim Opener2019-01-02 20:44
The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team has made great use of its off-season and enters the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season with high hopes of earning its 21st championship, all starting this Saturday, January 5 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.
The four-rider lineup of Adam Cianiciarulo (#92), Austin Forkner (#24), Martin Davalos (#73) and rookie Garrett Marchbanks (#61) will look to bring a full assault against the competition as the first gate drops this weekend.
The 2019 season not only is anticipating the return of the triple crown format and two East-West Showdown’s, but there will also be two new stops on the schedule. April 6, the series will visit Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee and then the next weekend visit Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver on April 13.
The riders competing in Round 1 of the Western Regional 250 Class will be announced by the end of the week.
Team By The Numbers
Between Cianciarulo, Forkner and Davalos, the trio has 12 supercross wins and 35 additional podium finishes.
Cianciarulo has finished runner-up the past two seasons and never finished lower than seventh place in 2018.
Cianciarulo’s average finish for his supercross career is 3.84.
In his sophomore supercross season, Forkner collected his first race win in Tampa, Florida and then backed it up with another a week later in Atlanta.
Cianciarulo leads the trio with six career wins, while Davalos has four and Forkner two.
After sitting out much of his rookie motocross season, Marchbanks will make his supercross debut in 2019.
The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders will be signing autographs on Friday, January 4 from 6 - 7 p.m. at Bert’s Mega Mall Kawasaki in Covina, California. Saturday’s race from Angel Stadium will be broadcast live on NBC Sports starting at 10 p.m. ET.
