Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Cianciarulo Nearly Gets First Win in San Diego

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Adam Cianciarulo stood on the podium for the third time this season as he earned his best result during Round 6 at Petco Park. His runner-up finish moved Cianciarulo within one point of third place in the championship standings. Joey Savatgy also had a good showing in San Diego and sits just five points out of the Western Regional 250SX championship lead following a fourth-place finish.

The day started off positive as Cianciarulo logged the second-fastest lap time in timed practice. When the night show started, Cianciarulo picked up his second heat race win, just ahead of his teammate. With that confidence going into the main event, Cianciarulo charged forward after a fourth-place start and quickly made it to second by the end of the first lap. He challenged Savatgy for the lead and took over on the second lap. In the final stages of the race, Cianciarulo went back and forth for the lead and eventually settled into second where he would finish.

"I am really happy to grab my best finish before the break," said Cianciarulo. "I rode a little tight for awhile and let Justin (Hill) slip away from me. It's going to be interesting coming back to an east/west shootout mid-season, but it's going to be good to get a little break now. I am going to enjoy being at home for a while."

The day was an uphill battle for Savatgy, who was hit by his bike after going down in practice. Even with a sore wrist, he grabbed a second-place finish in his heat race and was determined to close the gap on the championship leader. For the second time this season, Savatgy grabbed the holeshot and led the first lap. A few riders were able to get by Savatgy, but he stayed close in fourth where he finished, despite not being 100 percent.

"Today was a rough one after going down in practice," said Savatgy. "With this being the last race for a while, we had to tough it out ang go after some points before the break. I wish I could have made it to the podium to help cut into the points even more, but all things considered it was an okay night."

Savatgy Keeps Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Podium Streak Alive In Oakland

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy collected his second runner-up finish of the season inside Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. The ever-changing soft track conditions made for a challenging race, but Savatgy made moves to the front and finished second. Teammate Adam Cianciarulo had a rough first lap coming around in last, but he was able to get all the way up to seventh by the end of the race. Savatgy now sits second in the standings, just eight points down, while Cianciarulo is fourth.

Savatgy had a good start to the evening with a solid heat race, but really turned it on in the main event. With a track that seemed to eat riders up and cause mistakes, Savatgy raced strong and consistent. He battled all the way until the end to take over second place with just two laps to go. Savatgy moved up into second in the championship standings as the Western Regional 250SX championship hit its halfway mark.

"At the beginning of the race I felt like I was riding a bit tight," said Savatgy. "By about halfway, I settled in and tried to hang with the rider in front of me and see what he was doing different. It helped me relax and then I was able to turn it on at the end. I had a great time. I just hope next time we are battling for the lead and the win."

Adam Cianciarulo

The day was going great for Cianciarulo as he earned the fastest qualifying time and scored second in his heat race. Off the start he was pushed far inside and was forced to go inside the tough blocks, pushing him to the back of the pack. While making moves forward on the opening lap, he got caught up in a crash that happened right in front of him and went down. He remounted in last place, giving him the whole race to make up time. Cianciarulo never gave up and pushed until the end to finish seventh.

"After the start and going over the tough block I was trying to not get too flustered but I was forced to regroup after going down on the first lap," said Cianciarulo. "It's mentally tough knowing you have the speed to at least run up front, but not being able to be there and battle with those guys. There is still a lot of racing left so we'll get back at it this week and try and learn from the mistakes."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Cianciarulo Bounces Back Onto Podium in Glendale

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Adam Cianciarulo returned to the podium at Round 4 of the Monster Energy Supercross Series, bouncing back with a solid showing inside University of Phoenix Stadium. Slick conditions narrowly kept teammate Joey Savatgy off the podium, finishing fourth for the night. Savatgy sits third in the championship standings while Cianciarulo is fourth overall.

Starting the day qualifying second, Cianciarulo continued to showcase his talent and speed on the tough West Coast soil. He qualified third and after starting the main event in sixth, put his head down and started picking off riders. By the sixth lap he was into fourth behind his teammate and was able to capitalize on a mistake from Savatgy to move into third, where he maintained until the checkered flag.

"The start is definitely important with the array of talent that is in the class right now and I didn't get one tonight," said Cianciarulo. "With everyone being so 'on' it's harder to come through the pack. It really ended up being a mistake that helped push me forward, but I know that I have what it takes to win. I just need to put myself in that position."

Joey Savatgy

Savatgy entered the night show with the top qualifying time during the afternoon sessions. He was showcasing that speed, but a mistake in the hard-packed whoops forced Savatgy to qualify through the LCQ - which he won. Savatgy was able to get an awesome jump from the outside and earn the holeshot. He stayed with the front-runners for several laps and was keeping pace in third, but a mistake in the final few laps pushed him back to fourth where he finished.

"I was really trying to play it smart and ride my own race," said Savatgy. "It helped me last week, but the slick track bit me a few times. I'm thankful to have been able to get up quickly and get fourth, but it's not where I want to be. I know anything can happen in this series so we'll keep working and bring our best to Oakland next weekend."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Savatgy Wins and Moves Into Tie for Points Lead in Anaheim

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy earned his first win of the season during the first-ever triple crown format on Saturday night inside Angels Stadium. Savatgy's two main event wins and one second place finish gave him a comfortable lead over the runner-up. The win also pushed Savatgy into a tie for the points lead after three rounds. Teammate Cianciarulo narrowly missed the podium with his 4-5-2 score that resulted in fourth. Cianciarulo currently sits fifth in the points standings.

Joey Savatgy

The new format had riders racing three separate main events, making starts critical. In each Main Event, Savatgy put his Kawasaki KX250F near the front of the pack. Main Event 1 was a wire-to-wire win for Savatgy, while he narrowly missed the win by only three seconds in Main Event 2. The final main event forced Savatgy be smart and wait for the right moment to pass, which came with four laps remaining. His 1-2-1 olympic scoring put him five points ahead of second place, making for a consistent and impressive victory.

"Starts were pretty critical with this format and we were able to get three really good ones," said Savatgy. "The win feels really good. It's been a long road to get back here and we've put in a lot of work. I've been in this position before (holding the red plate) and I just need to find a flow and focus on staying consistent."

Adam Cianciarulo

Cianciarulo had a good start to the day, qualifying second. Even with a crash in practice he lined up ready to collect a solid finish. Like his teammate, he got off to some great starts, including in Main Event 1. He ran with the front runners and finished fourth. In Main Event 2, Cianciarulo had to come through the pack and finished the race in fifth. The final and longest main event of the evening was Cianciarulo's best. Even after starting outside the top five, he charged to the front and finished the 12 minutes plus one lap race only 0.2 seconds behind Savatgy.

"It was a rollercoaster day, but I'm glad I was able to put in three solid motos," said Cianciarulo. "I finially started feeling really good in that third moto and chipped away at the lead. I was so close to getting on the podium, which is great after having a rough practice session with the crash."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Savatgy Earns First Podium Finish of the Season

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy overcame an ever-changing track inside NRG Stadium to earn his first podium of the season, finishing second in the Main Event. Round 2 started out well for teammate Adam Cianciarulo with the fastest qualifier and heat race win, but a few mistakes pushed him back to finish seventh in the Main Event.

Joey Savatgy

To start the night, Savatgy grabbed third in the Heat Race, giving him a solid gate pick for the Main Event. When the gate dropped, he shot his Kawasaki KX250F to the holeshot and led the field around the first lap. He held onto the lead for over half the race, but with a deteriorating track Savatgy raced on the safe side to collect valuable championship points - finishing second.

"I felt like I was riding fast to be comfortable on that track," said Savatgy. "I seemed to catch lappers at a bad spot not allowing me to catch first, but I didn't want to ride over my head in only the second round of the season. The track changed every lap so it was challenging to pick up time, so in the end I'm really happy to get second."

Adam Cianciarulo

Cianciarulo entered the second round with confidence as he came off a podium finish in Anaheim. He adapted to the track quickly, qualifying first and earning his first heat race win of the season. In the Main Event, Cianciarulo rocketed out to third on the start. Keeping the front runners close, Cianciarulo pushed hard and made a mistake right around the halfway mark. He got up very quick, only losing a few spots and made up the time with his quick speed. With two laps left, Cianciarulo made another small mistake and was forced to finish seventh in Houston.

"I know the track was really tough, but it stings a little bit when I was feeling good all day," said Cianciarulo. "It was a big learning experience forme as I adapt more to the hard-packed race tracks that change so much over the course of 15 minutes. I know I can bounce back next weekend in Anaheim so I'm looking forward to it."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Cianciarulo and Savatgy Impress With Opening Round Rides

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team started the 2018 season at Angel Stadium with two of its veterans behind the gate, resulting in a third-place podium finish for Adam Cianciarulo and a fourth-place for Joey Savatgy. With all the nerves of the opening round behind them, the duo found themseves just five and seven points off the championship leader, respectively.

Adam Cianciarulo

Cianciarulo had been campaigning to ride the west coast for some time and he proved he was up to the task with a great overall day at Round 1. The Floridian adapted quickly to the slick dirt and demanding track, qualifying second during timed practice. In his heat race, Cianciarulo showed some aggressive riding as he passed for second on the final lap.

In the main event, Cianciarulo was shuffled outside the top five on the start and was forced to push through the pack. With the track being slick and often one-lined, it took a little longer than he hoped to make it past riders, but was able to get into third by the fifth of 18 laps. He held on despite the deteriorating track and earned third - his fifth podium in 16 supercross starts.

"Tonight we got off to a good start and it's nice to get some good points," said Cianciarulo. "I can't be overly stoked on third because I know I'm capable of more, but I was pretty nervous being a part of the very first race of the season for the first time and all the nerves that come with that. I think we are in a good spot for the rest of the season."

Joey Savatgy

Savatgy's last Western Regional campaign was in 2015 where he finished runner-up in the championship. He was more than ready to put in a consistent finish at the opening round. It started with a third-place qualifying position, and like his teammate finished second in his heat. Savatgy had a bit of work to do in the main event after starting eighth, but didn't let that stop him from pushing to the front. Just after halfway, Savatgy passed for fourth where he would end the night.

"Anaheim is one of those races where you feel especially good when you leave healthy and with a solid result," said Savatgy. "With all that could go wrong at an opening race like an injury or bad finish, I felt like we put in a good ride overall and have things we can use to build off of for next weekend. We'll go home and put in the work to come back even stronger in Houston."
