Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Look To Forkner and Davalos to Keep Win Streak Alive2019-02-07 15:02
Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo and Garrett Marchbanks rounded out the Western Regional class’ first stretch of races with a double podium and now the team looks to Austin Forkner and Martin Davalos to keep things going at the opening round of the Eastern Regional class. The duo will debut this weekend inside U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Forkner enters the new season with more experience and a couple of wins under his belt. The Tampa Bay and Atlanta supercross winner has big eyes to start things off strong but knows that being consistent is even more important when it comes to the bigger title picture.
“I would love to win and start chasing the long term goal of a championship, but more than anything I want to get solid results and stay healthy,” said Forkner. “We’ve worked really hard in the off-season and I think the west coast guys really showed us that it’s about being up front, but also being consistent.”
Davalos has waited just shy of a year for his chance to line up again, this time sporting the No. 73 on his Kawasaki KX250. Putting the past behind him, Davalos is ready to make the most of 2019, starting things off strong in Minneapolis.
“It’s been a long time coming for me to get back out there,” said Davalos. “I’m thankful to get another shot and showcase that I’m capable of winning races for the team. At the very least, I would love to get through this one on the podium and healthy.”
The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders will be signing autographs on Friday, February 8 from 6 - 7 p.m. at Cities Edge Motorsports in Shakopee, Minnesota.
Saturday’s race from U.S. Bank Stadium will be broadcast live on NBC Sports starting on Saturday, February 9 at 8 p.m. ET.
