All Eyes on Forkner and Davalos as Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Heads East
Corona, Calif. (February 14, 2018) – Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo will both be getting a few weeks off as the Monster Energy Supercross series makes its way east to Arlington, Texas, for Round 1 of the Eastern Regional 250SX championship. The wait is over for Austin Forkner and Martin Davalos to showcase their speed, getting the first of nine rounds underway inside AT&T Stadium this Saturday.
The road to Round 1 was longer than expected for Forkner, who has bounced back from an arm injury he sustained while preparing for the season. In true Forkner style, he’s put in the work and is back better than ever. In his sophomore supercross season, Forkner is eager to prove he’s championship material.
“I feel like I’ve been waiting for Round 1 to happen for some time now,” said Forkner. “When you have to wait to heal up and then wait even longer for the east coast, it’s a great feeling when it finally arrives. Training has been going well so I’m looking forward to extending the team’s podium streak in Texas.”
Davalos is looking to enjoy the same success he had during his 2017 supercross campaign where he consistently finished inside the top five. Known as a fast starter, Davalos collected two holeshots last season. If anything, Davalos is out to prove he belongs on the team he has enjoyed so much success with in the past.
“It’s time to put my head down and deliver results for the team,” said Davalos. “I had a good 2017 and want to prove that I can run up front and contend for the championship. It will be nice to head back to the east coast. I had two wins last time I raced this side of the country. I’m really looking forward to a good season.”
Prior to Saturday’s race, the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders will be signing autographs on Friday, February 16 from 6 – 7 p.m. at Freedom PowerSports in Fort Worth.
Saturday’s race from AT&T Stadium will be broadcast live on FS1 or the FOX Sports GO app starting at 8 p.m. ET.
