rider image

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy kept a personal and team win streak alive as he claimed the first victory of the 2017 Eastern Regional 250SX Championship inside U.S. Bank Stadium. While Savatgy extended the Pro Circuit win streak to five, he also continued his win streak started at the final race in Las Vegas last season. Teammate Adam Cianciarulo overcame a tough start to finish fifth.

Joey Savatgy

Savatgy was just edged out for the top spot in qualifying, but had no problem claiming his first heat race win of the season. In the main event, Savatgy got a great start and settled in behind the leader on the opening laps. Just before halfway, he was able to get by the leader and bring home another win for the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team.

"It was a tight track that was a bit tricky," said Savatgy. "I just tried to stay close to the leader and was able to get around him. We have some stuff we can work on this week and I'm really looking forward to the race this weekend in Atlanta."

Adam Cianciarulo

In his first supercross race back since 2014, Cianciarulo was ready to shake off the cobwebs and prove his speed on the track. He qualified fourth overall and finished just behind his teammate in the heat race for second. Once the main event kicked off, Cianciarulo had a bit of work to do after a mid-pack start but he was up to the challenge and made passes all the way up fifth.

"I think I rode pretty tight since it has been a few years I've been behind a supercross starting gate," said Cianciarulo. "I think my confidence is there and happy that we got some good points out of my first race back as we head to Atlanta."

rider image

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Justin Hill claimed his third straight victory of the season, bringing Pro Circuit's win record to 251. With the win, Hill took over the championship point's lead and the coveted red plate. Teammate Austin Forkner was forced to retire from the race early after an opening lap crash.

Justin Hill

Hill had all the cards stacked against him in Oakland, but he wasn't going to let sickness or a treacherous track keep him from his third-straight win. He started the day with the fastest lap time in qualifying and then went on to take second in his heat race. In the main event, he avoided a second turn pileup and pushed his way to the front, leading wire-to-wire. It wasn't without drama as he had gone down late in the race but had enough of a gap to keep the lead and go on to win.

"Tonight was crazy because the track was really rutted and if you lost focus for a second you could go off the track," said Hill."I was sick all week and didn't ride. My team was great. They gave me the confidence I needed to get through this tough day."

Austin Forkner

Forkner started showing his speed in qualifying where he placed sixth. Once the night show started, he overcame a tough heat race where he went off the track early but came back to finish fifth. he shot out to an awesome start in the main event, but ultimately went down and was unable to continue, scoring him 22nd for the evening.

"Today wasn't easy," said Forkner. "I struggled to find my groove and get a clean lap in. Once I made it through the heat race in one piece, I made a mistake in the main and it ended my race. I have to take the good with the bad and just move on. We'll go to Texas and give it another shot before the break."

Pro Circuit Racing Team Celebrates 250 Wins

riders image

Winning a professional Supercross or Motocross event is an incredible accomplishment, and many racers have captured the illustrious "W" under the Pro Circuit team colors. The first win came on January 12, 1991 with Brian Swink, a young Michigan Native racer at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. Soon, Pro Circuit would see more success with riders Jeremy McGrath, Ryan Hughes, Mickael Pichon, Ricky Carmichael, Ryan Villopoto and many more. After competing as a professional race team for 26 years, racking up wins and championships, our team was able to add another notch on the belt on January 28, 2017 when Justin Hill earned the team's 250th event win.

The historic win came during round four of the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Championship where Justin Hill rode to victory at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Teammates Joey Savatgy and Austin Forkner contributed to this milestone with a combined eight event wins during the 2016 season in both the Monster Energy Supercross Championship and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

The team's success can be accredited to more than riders alone. Pro Circuit founder and team owner Mitch Payton assembled highly skilled engine and suspension technicians throughout the years that have assisted with the team's achievements. The team has been privileged to work with many of the best brands and companies in the industry to help keep our bikes running and looking great. The very same superior equipment that has snagged 250 checkered flags is the same equipment we offer to our customers, including; exhaust, engine and suspension services, engine parts and bike accessories. We race what we sell, and if 250 event wins is any indication of the quality and performance of our products we offer, it's safe to say we know what we're doing.

Pro Circuit would like to sincerely thank all current and past racers, staff, sponsors and friends for their commitment and support in helping us reach this amazing feat! Undoubtedly, when the next victory emerges, it will be a victory for all involved.

Double Podium in Phoenix

rider image

Prepared for another exciting round of the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Championship, Justin Hill and Austin Forkner arrived in Arizona fit for battle. Motivated by last weekend's positive results, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team has been busy on and off the track dialing in their rides and prepping for battle. Their hard work paid off and both riders landed on the podium. Justin Hill's victory marked the team's 250th win and Austin Forkner's 3rd place finish marked the rookie's first professional Supercross podium.

rider image

Justin Hill

It was another great weekend for Justin Hill. In the day's qualifying, he set the fastest lap times and kept the momentum going. In Heat 2, he easily took the number one spot and looked forward to the night's final race. In the main event he stayed smooth lap after lap. In the final minutes, Justin made his move on the points leader, moving past him and taking the lead. Holding his position, he crossed the checkers in first for back-to-back podiums!

"I pushed hard and around the halfway mark, I knew I was inching up on the leader, I was hitting my marks and riding well. My mechanic was doing really well at getting me my times and keeping me up on where I was at. I dropped the lead down to about four seconds and then the leader tangled with a couple lappers and I reeled up on him and I thought, this is it, I'm going to do it! Even after the race I was talking with my family and still couldn't believe I did that. I did it, it was so cool!"

Austin Forkner

Week after week, Austin Forkner continues to impress. The rookie rider was off to a good start in Heat 1. He took the holeshot and battled for the lead, and finished the heat race in second. In the night's main event, he and his KX250F once again took the holeshot and competed for the number one spot. Throughout the evening, he stayed within the top three and pushed himself to remain there. At the checkered flag, Austin finished in third and experienced his first professional Monster Energy Supercross podium!

"The race was good. I rode a lot better than I have been, more consistent and didn't make mistakes. I was really confident in my starts, back to back weekends I've earned both holeshots in the heat and main. With starts like that I knew I was going to be up there and thought if someone gets by I just need to relax, figure out what they're doing better than me and use it to be better. I knew I needed to not make mistakes like I did in the heat where I cased the triple trying to pass someone back. I tried to ride smooth and fast, I'm really happy with how I opened the race and I held the lead for a few laps which is definitely the best I've done so far."

Justin Hill Wins at A2

rider image

Round 3 of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship brought the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team back to Anaheim this past Saturday. Having experienced wet weather for much of the week, the sun came out and welcomed the team back to Angel Stadium. Quickly setting the pace for the day, Justin Hill and Austin Forkner got to work during qualifying and carried the momentum into the night's heat races and Main Event. At the end of the evening, Justin Hill led the 250 class and found himself on top of the box.

Justin Hill

Having nearly taken the win last weekend in San Diego, Justin Hill was more than ready to takeover this weekend. He and his KX250F had no problem setting the fastest time during qualifying. After a top three finish in Heat 1, the Main Event was looking better and better for number 46. He charged through the pack in the main and in Turn 1 he snagged the lead. Maintaining his position, he captured his first win of the season!

"The weekend ended great. It's funny because I started the day feeling off, but when the main comes around and there's points on the line, it's go time. I let it all hang out on the track and I was able to do it confidently. When I took over the lead I didn't expect to get it at that time, it came faster than I thought and I just went with it. I'm excited about the rest of the season and about right now."

Austin Forkner

Demonstrating constant improvement, Austin Forkner arrived in Southern California fit for battle. In Heat 2 he grabbed the lead and rode aggressively to maintain his spot. Keeping an impressive pace, the rookie Supercross rider experienced his first heat win! Austin blasted past the competition in the main and took the holeshot. Staying solid all day, he finished just outside of the top three and remains eager and enthusiastic for a podium finish!

"I was charging pretty hard in the first lap. I was stood up a couple times and then made a mistake in the whoops and went back to fourth. Most of the race all happened in the first couple laps for me. If I was able to get the first few laps clean I would have had a better result. After I started riding smoother, I was able to match the pace of the riders in front of me and I feel really confident moving forward."

Austin Forkner

Austin Forkner entered Petco Park ready for anything that may be thrown at him. He displayed great riding in qualifying and during the second heat race.

In the night's main event, he fought to maintain his position. Never giving up, Austin Forkner crossed the checkers in fifth and remains motivated for the next round.

"We got a lot faster as the day went on. A few changes to the bike throughout the day lead to being able to loosen up and ride better. In the heat we got the holeshot and raced really hard for third. In the Main Event we had a great start but tangled with another rider and dropped back to eighth. I felt a little tight but made some solid passes and overall rode well. The lap times were competitive and we're making progress, so we are happy so far."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Rides Into 2017

rider image

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team kicked off 2017 at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim for round one of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship this past Saturday. The team entered A1 ready for action and were determined to stay ahead of the pack. Exiting round one, Justin Hill finished in 5th and Austin Forkner in 8th. The duo looks forward to redemption next weekend in San Diego.

rider image

Justin Hill

Back for the 2017 season, Justin Hill came into A1 aboard his KX250F equipped for battle. Justin quickly progressed into the heat races after a strong performance during qualifying. During the first heat, he demonstrated great speed and spend most of the race among the leaders. Finishing in an impressive 3rd, it was time to prepare for the main event. He rode smooth and steady throughout the main and crossed the checkers in 5th.

"I felt really good all day. My practice times were pretty good and qualifying went well, but at the end of the day I still have some work to do. I need to improve my fitness and to make my riding more fluid so it's easier to race at the pace I'm capable of. It's difficult when I know I have the speed and the bike to be at the front but I come home fifth. I'll take this as motivation, go home and put the work in."

rider image

Austin Forkner

After a very successful rookie year in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, Austin Forkner is looking to continue his success into Supercross. The young rider demonstrated the traits of a strong rider throughout the day's qualifying and heat races. Set to lead the pack in the main, he began to charge through the track. He went down in the whoops, but he did not stay down for long. Determined to return to the front, he got back on his bike and began to make his way back to the front. Austin finished the night in 8th and remains hungry to lead in San Diego.

"My first Monster Energy Supercross went pretty well. I crossed the line second in my heat which was good experience for me. In the main I didn't get the start I wanted but was moving forward pretty quickly. A few laps in I was passed in the whoops and had to let off to avoid a collision, which put me in the dirt. I got up, got back in the race and worked my way forward. I threw down the fastest lap of the race and was right on pace with the leaders until the checkers, so all in all I'm pretty happy with my performance."
