Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Closes Out Season With A Tough Outing

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Cameron McAdoo and Austin Forkner didn't have the day they were looking for at the final Supercross round of the season, finishing 11th and 21st, respectively. The team will now get almost a month off before the start of the Pro Motocross Series on July 18 in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

The day started well for McAdoo who claimed a fourth-place in the Western Regional heat race leading into the Showdown Main Event. The main event ended up having a full restart following a red flag and McAdoo grabbed a great start in fourth. He was running with the front pack but fell back a few spots to seventh before going down on the final lap and regrouping to finish 11th.

"This wasn't really how we wanted to end the season, but this year has already been filled with highs and lows and it's all a part of the process," said McAdoo. "If we didn't have the hard days, we wouldn't know how to get better. I'm ready to finally start focusing on outdoors and see where that season goes for us."

Coming into the final race, Forkner had collected four wins on the season and was out to prove he is a leader in the class. He mathematically had a chance at the championship and put himself in a good position after a third-place finish in his heat race. Unfortunately, he went down a few laps into the main event and was unable to finish the race after going down. Forkner was taken to a local hospital for observation.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner Takes Back-To-Back Wins At Penultimate Western Regional Round

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner made a statement at the penultimate round of the Western Regional 250SX with a come-from-behind win to capture his fourth win of the season. His win inched him closer in the points to place him just seven points back of the leader with one round remaining. Teammate Cameron McAdoo also had a solid night aboard his Kawasaki KX250, finishing just off the podium in fourth.

The night started out a little tough with Forkner having to come back in his heat race after getting tangled up just after the first turn. He was able to get back up to fourth and still have a decent gate pick for the main event.

In the main, he found himself fourth on the start and quickly making a charge to the front. By Lap 5 he was into second and started to close the gap to the front. He was patient and while the track was very one-lined, he was able to find his opening for the lead on Lap 15 and held on until the checkered flag.

"After a few rounds where I was caught and passed by Dylan, it was my turn to catch him and get around him," said Forkner. "It felt totally different to chase him down and there really weren't a lot of places to make a move since everyone was running pretty much the same lines. I had a small opportunity and I knew I had to take it. I know he would have done the same thing, and has done the same thing. It's awesome to be in conention for the championship as we head into the final race next week. We'll see what happens."

rider image

McAdoo continued to prove his place at the front of the pack in Salt Lake City. He was running really quick in his heat race - where he finished second - which translated into the main. He tucked in behind his teammate at the start and came around fifth after the opening lap. McAdoo had made it up to third at one point but was battling to maintain position. He eventually finished the 15 minutes plus one lap main event in fourth place, just one second back of the final podium spot.

"It was tough to see that podium finish slip away because we've been working really hard to be up there every time we hit the track," said McAdoo. "I know I have been riding well and I will take that with me to the final race, but another podium finish would have been sweet to push through the week. Now we'll have to get back at it and make sure we come out ready to fight for it next Sunday."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Earns Double Podium with Forkner Taking The Win in West's Return

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner kicked off the Western Regional 250SX return with a big win inside Rice-Eccles Stadium. Joining him on the podium was teammate Cameron McAdoo with his first podium finish of the season. Forkner's win pushed him into second place in the standings, 10-points back of the leader with two rounds remaining, including a race on Sunday and the showdown a week later.

rider image

Forkner had spent 123 days looking forward to lining up again and his hard work during the downtime paid off. He showcased speed during qualifying, won his heat race and shot out to the lead on the opening lap of the main event. Even as his rival pressed towards his Kawasaki KX250, he turned up the speed and was able to cross the finish line with a 3.1-second advantage.

"We've been working hard at the track during our break," said Forkner. "To be honest, this is the hottest race we've had and you add in the altitude, it's not easy. It was definitely the toughest race we've had all season. Which makes it that much sweeter. I think we learned a lot tonight that we can continue to build on for the race on Sunday."

rider image

The night show started with a heat race that showed McAdoo was here to race, nearly earning the win but finishing third. He tucked in at the front on the start of the main event and had raced into second at one point before settling into third. He maintained his speed and finished two seonds ahead of fourth place. His third-place finish was his second career podium.

"We worked really hard in the off time and it wasn't always easy to keep it going when we didn't know when we were coming back racing," said McAdoo. "But this is what it's all about - seeing the hard work pay off. I've really tried to stay focused on knowing that the work I was doing would get me results and I'm really happy to be up on the podium."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Marchbanks Ends Night Early

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Garrett Marchbanks started Round 13 with a solid heat race finish inside Rice-Eccles Stadium, but the tricky track conditions due to rain collected the Utah native and forced him to end the night early. Marchbanks was sent to the hospital for evaluation on his ribs and will now have a week and a half off before the Eastern Regional 250SX championship resumes on June 17.

"Garrett was riding well and had a good heat race so it was tough to see him get hurt. He stayed overnight in the hospital for observation on a bruised lung and will hopefully have some good news soon." - Zach White, R&D Manager

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Marchbanks Bounces Back to Top Five Finish

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Garrett Marchbanks rode through the pack on a rare Wednesday night main event to score his fifth top-five finish of the season. Marchbanks maintained his third-place position in the championship standings with three Eastern Regional 250SX races remaining.

Garrett Marchbanks

With only two off days between races instead of the regular week, Marchbanks and the crew had a quick turnaround to be ready for Round 5 of the Eastern Regional 250SX class. In his heat race, he got into second early and earned himself a good gate pick for the main event.

The main event was a different story as Marchbanks was forced to come through the pack after funneling around the first corner outside the top 10. He made quick work of his competitors and before halfway, made it up to fifth. With the riders spread out at that point, Marchbanks maintained his position and collected another top-five finish on the year.

"My start in the main didn't do me any favors trying to get up to the front," said Marchbanks. "I was way back and had to manage to get through the pack. I'm thankful that we were able to get through pretty quickly, but the pace at the front is really high and if you're not there at the start, it's hard to close the gap. Everything else feels great, I just need to get up there so I can challange those guys from the start. We get another try in a few days (on Sunday)."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Marchbanks Races To Podium Finish in Salt Lake City

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Garrett Marchbanks was the sole representation for the team on Sunday as racing resumed following an 85-day break. He made his team proud with a hard-fought podium finish in hot and dry conditions inside Rice-Eccles Stadium, finishing third. Marchbanks now sits third in the points, 14 points back of second.

Garrett Marchbanks

Marchbanks started the day with a solid fifth-place in qualifying. The riders only got to see the track twice and didn't get a track walk, so with the different conditions it was a good way to get the day going.

The riders knew it was going to be a long main event with a short, dry track testing them at altitude, so once Marchbanks pulled into third in his heat, he maintained a good pace and lined up with a good gate selection for the main event.

Once the gate dropped for the main event, Marchbanks was ready to get back on the podium. He started fourth, but quickly found his opportunity to make a pass for third and did so on the fourth lap. Marchbanks made some pushes to the front, but ended the day with a solid podium finish.

"There was a lot that could have gone against us today with the track being so dry and still adjusting to the altitude and heat," said Marchbanks. "And after so much downtime, it was hard to anticipate what to expect. With all those factors, we'll take a podium, but that's not where we want to be. I'm really glad we don't have to wait very long to line up again. We'll be ready to improve on Wednesday."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Marchbanks Races To First Career Win

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Garrett Marchbanks celebrated a night of firsts as he earned his first career heat race win on the way to his first-ever main event win at Daytona International Speedway. The Utah native became the first racer from his home state to take a supercross win. Teammate Jordon Smith was following right behind his teammate in the main event before going down and was forced to retire early.

Garrett Marchbanks

It was a night to remember for Marchbanks, who continued to show speed in his sophomore supercross season. It all paid off at the historic 50th running of the Daytona Supercross, where he not only took his first-ever career main event win but started the night off with a heat race win.

When the gate dropped for the main event, it was Marchbanks on his KX250 leading the way and grabbing the holeshot. He immediately put in several fast laps that helped him enjoy a cushion over second place. Every push made by the riders behind him was met with Marchbanks matching pace, proving he was capable of handling the pressure that comes with leading races. With his win, Marchbanks maintains his fourth-place spot in the championship standings, now just one point out of third.

"I'm on cloud nine right now," said Marchbanks. "I've thought about this for a long time - what it would be like to win - and it's better than I could have imagined. It's especially cool to get a win at Daytona. It's such a historic race. I'm thankful that the team has been so supportive and knew I had what it takes. I finally got a great start and can't believe we went wire-to-wire."

Jordon Smith

The day started out well for Smith who qualified sixth and went on to finish second in his heat race. In the main event, Smith tucked in right behind Marchbanks on the start at the front. A few corners later, he collided with another rider, going down and tweaking his knee. Smith was forced to call it a night, but is hopeful the tweak isn't serious and will be evaluated this week.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Smith Earns Best Finish of the Season in Atlanta

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Jordon Smith enjoyed a solid race back in the top five with a fourth place inside the Mercedes Benz Stadium. As the closest race for the North Carolinian, he felt the impact of having friends and family cheering him on and earned his best finish of the season. Teammate Garrett Marchbanks was also on pace to finish just behind him, but an issue late in the race pushed him back to seventh.

Jordon Smith

The home race for Smith was just what he needed to bounce back from his ride in Arlington. The familiar Georgia clay was a welcomed sight for the rider who also trains in the Peach State. Smith got a good start and settled into fifth behind his teammate. He waited for the right moment and was able to get around. The front runners had charged already at that point, but Smith came away with a solid ride and his best of the season in fourth.

"It felt good to be so close to where I train and grew up," said Smith. "I was ready to breakthrough and have a race track that I was meshing with. I wish I could have kept the front guys closer, but we'll take it one step at a time and make our way onto that podium."

rider image

Garrett Marchbanks

Marchbanks showed speed all day and was excited to run after another top five finish, if not more. He settled into fourth on the start of the main event before Smith got by and pushed him back to fifth. Marchbanks stayed close but near the final laps of the race, he had an issue that pushed him back to seventh.

"Seventh wasn't what I felt like I had to give today, but sometimes that's how racing goes," said Marchbanks. "We've been making good progress testing during the week and I'm really looking forward to the outdoor style track next weekend in Daytona."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Marchbanks Makes It Back-to-Back Top-Five Finishes

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Garrett Marchbanks earned his second top-five finish of the season inside AT&T Stadium as the Supercross series hosted its second Triple Crown format this year. Marchbanks showed speed in all three main events, finishing the night with a 6-4-5 score. Teammate Jordon Smith had plenty of bright moments, but ultimately luck was not on his side and finished 13th with a 4-20-14 score.

rider image

Garrett Marchbanks

The track hadn't been very forgiving to many of the riders throughout the day, but Marchbanks was riding well and ready for action. Marchbanks had an inspiring first main event after starting 14th in which he made quick work of his competition to make it up to sixth in a shorter 10-minute race.

His start was better in Main Event 2, putting him sixth on the start. Marchbanks was able to put in his best finish of the night with a fourth during the second race. He faced another uphill battle in Main Event 3 after starting just outside the top 10. With an ever-deteriorating track, Marchbanks made sure to hit his lines and was able to end the final race of the night in fifth, giving him fifth overall.

"I was hoping to battle more with those guys at the front, but I didn't put down the best starts and had to work my way up," said Marchbanks. "Even coming through traffic I was able to get in some really good lap times, so I need to make it easier on myself and try to get some clear laps at the front. It will be good to get back to a normal schedule and go after another solid finish next week."

rider image

Jordon Smith

Smith had his fair share of run-ins with other riders that resulted in him on the ground or nearly there. In the end, his results don't show how well he was riding. In Main Event 1, Smith nearly grabbed the holeshot and was riding solid where he would eventually take his best finish of the night in fourth.

His Main Event 2 start wasn't what he was looking for and was outside the top 10 for the first five laps. As he was making progress, Smith and another rider came together after the finish line, putting him at the back of the pack. Ready to make up for the tough second race, Smith had another good start and was running fifth. He was able to make it up to third before another rider bumped him to the ground. Smith remounted but wasn't able to keep up the same pace and finished 14th in Main Event 3.

"To say I got beat up out there today would be an understatement," said Smith. "There were things that were just accidents and then there some that seemed to be intentional. If I took away the time on the ground, I was happy with my speed and had two out of three good starts. I can't dwell on the bad, but I can learn from it. We'll be ready for Atlanta."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Starts East Coast Campaign with Top Five Finishes

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Garrett Marchbanks and Jordon Smith were treated to a technical, hard-packed and sandy track to open their Eastern Regional 250SX season inside Raymond James Stadium with both riders emerging with top-five finishes. Marchbanks started the season with a fourth-place finish, while Jordon Smith ended up right behind his teammate in fifth.

Garrett Marchbanks

Sophomore supercross rider Garrett Marchbanks had high expectations entering the 2020 season and was able to start off on a good note. He finished second in his heat race, giving him a good gate pick in the main event. Marchbanks didn't get the start he was looking for and came around the first lap in 11th. It didn't take him long to push to the front and was into fifth by Lap 5. He moved into fourth when his teammate had an issue and remained steady in that position until the checkered flag.

"I was really hoping for a podium this weekend, but I made things a bit hard on myself when I started outside the top 10," said Marchbanks. "Starts are going to be crucial next week with the triple crown so we'll look to work on those this week to come better prepared. Overall still a good night and glad to be in the top 10 on such a tough track."

rider image

Jordon Smith

The track itself was oftentimes the biggest opponent for the riders in Tampa. Smith never gave up pushing back against its efforts to try and bring him down. He finished third behind his teammate in the heat race and got a great jump on the main event start, coming around the first lap in second. Smith was running well, but had a tip over in the sand section that pushed him back to fifth where he would eventually finish.

"This wasn't exactly the finish I had in mind when we made our preparations for the start of the season, but I have to look at the positives and we are out of here healthy," said Smith. "Sometimes that's half the battle when you face a track that is tough. After so much time away from a race track, it's great to be back and we plan to make the most out of the triple crown next weekend."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner Collects Second Straight Podium Finish

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner enters the six-week break for the western regional riders with his second consecutive runner-up finish. The track inside Petco Park was tight and fast with the fans being treated to a great race. Teammate Cameron McAdoo still has been managing his injuries but showed good speed all day before having to retire early with an issue, finishing 22nd.

rider image

Austin Forkner

To start the night, Forkner won his fourth heat race of the season. He continued his trend of good starts and came around the first lap of the main event in second. By the fifth lap, Forkner had moved into the lead. Before reaching the halfway point the riders started to encounter lapped riders, adding in another challenge on the tight and technical track. After Lap 16, Forkner was pushed wide and was forced off the track, moving him back to second. With it being late in the race, Forkner ran out of time to put in a charge, finishing in second.

"Second is obviously not where I want to be," said Forkner. "I've been leading laps and know the speed is there, but have missed it the past two weeks by just the tiniest little bit. I know I led more laps this week. It still doesn't take away from wishing things had gone differently. We have a chance to regroup for a few weeks and see if there are any places that we can improve to make the outcome different. Because you can always improve."

McAdoo has turned heads with his tenacity to line up despite not being 100 percent. He's been able to run up front, taking second in his heat race in San Diego. McAdoo put himself in a good position in the main after a solid start but had to finish the race on the sidelines when he came across an issue. Despite the setback, he still walked away with positives from the night.

"It's a bummer that I wasn't able to see if I would have been able to get inside the top 10 tonight, but things happen," said McAdoo. "If anyone is looking forward to the break it's me. I'm ready to get back to 100 percent so I can prove that I am able to run up front with my teammate and those guys. I've had a lot of positives that will keep me motivated in the off-weeks."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner Rides To Podium Finish in Oakland

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner came out swinging inside RingCentral Coliseum, taking home a runner-up finish on the night. The podium finish pushed him into third overall in the championship standings, 10 points behind the leader and seven behind second place. Teammate Cameron McAdoo rejoined the team in Oakland after sitting out with injury the past three rounds, coming back to win his heat race and eventually finishing the night 14th.

After a larger football stadium last weekend, the riders were back inside a baseball configuration, which has been notorious for being tight and technical. Forkner started the night with a heat race win and a great gate pick for the main event. On the start, Forkner came around third, but was quickly into second and after only one lap made his move for the lead.

Forkner maintained the lead until just after halfway when he made a mistake in the whoops that allowed the rider behind him to overtake as a lapper slowed Forkner. He kept a solid pace for the remainder of the night, finishing second and almost 13 seconds ahead of the next rider.

"Tonight I felt pretty solid," said Forkner. "I was happy with my speed and fitness. I just happened to make a mistake right as I was getting caught, which cost me because everyone was so close in lap times. I'm happy with the race, but obviously wish I could have gotten the win."

Cameron McAdoo

McAdoo had been eager to make his return to the races and it showed with his first gate drop resulting in a win in the heat race. In the main event, he got a good start but was pinched off and came around in eighth. McAdoo moved into seventh on the third lap and maintained his position for several laps before a miscue sent him down and he remounted in 13th. When the checkered flag flew, McAdoo earned 14th for the night.

"It was really good to be back lining up for the team," said McAdoo. "Getting the heat race win felt awesome. I got a decent start in the main and was holding a top 10 but made a mistake and went down. The track was technical and still not being quite 100 percent cost me a little bit in the end. It was great to get out there and see where I was at because I just didn't know until I did it."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner Makes Up Ground in Championship Standings with Second Win of the Season

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner put together an impressive ride inside State Farm Stadium to climb back to the top of the podium for the second time this year. His Triple Crown win (1-1-3) earned him maximum points on the night, pulling within 10 points of the championship leader.

With three gate drops that would determine an overall winner, it was of great importance to get good starts. Forkner took full advantage of this as he found the front right away in Main Event 1 and led wire-to-wire. In Main Event 2, Forkner was with the front pack at the start and once the riders in front made a few mistakes, he was able to pass for the lead and take the win.

In the final main event, Forkner continued his streak of good starts and once he moved into third, put it on cruise control and finished the night with the overall victory.

"I came into the night with last week fully behind me," said Forkner. "We worked hard this week and knew it was going to be about starts. In the end, I am really happy to not only win, but to start digging myself out of the hole. 10 points is a whole lot better than 22 points. We'll keep working hard to stay up front and plug away at the lead."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Puts Anaheim in Rear View After Tough Night

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner had a good night going for him at Angel Stadium during Round 3 of the Monster Energy Supercross series, though the end result of 17th wasn't what he had hoped for. With seven rounds left, Forkner has plenty of time to bounce back and make a run at the points leader.

After taking the heat race win in dominating fashion, Forkner was confident he could translate that speed to the main event. He managed to squeeze through the first turn and start the main event in third. While holding a good pace for a majority of the race, Forkner caught an edge of one of the whoops and went down. He didn't give up and remounted to finish out the race, resulting in a 17th for the night. He is currently fourth in the standings, 22 points out of the lead.

"It was a tough one to take tonight after being in good postion the whole race," said Forkner. "The track was changing a lot during the race, getting slippery and the whoops broke down a lot more than we expected. Moving forward, I know I will do everything in my power to make sure I'm getting maximum points and go after the red plate. Next week will be interesting with the Triple Crown so we'll see how that changes things up."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner Returns to Top Step of the Podium with Home State Win

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner proved he was back and capable of winning with a dominating performance in front of his home state inside The Dome at America's Center, earning his second straight main event holeshot and taking the wire-to-wire win. Teammate Cameron McAdoo posted fast times in practice, but after going down in the second timed qualifying session it was decided that he should sit out for the night to focus on returning next weekend.

Austin Forkner

Forkner had a chip on his shoulder coming into the second round after he was forced to relinquish his podium last week due to a mistake on the track. As Team Owner Mitch Payton pointed out, Forkner was shaking off some rust but showed improvements every time he was on the track.

With a race under his belt, Forkner was determined to prove he was ready to get back to the top and did so by winning his heat race, then going on to grab the main event holeshot and leading all 18 laps. He moved into second in the championship standings, five points back from the leader.

"I'm really happy to get back up here (on the podium)," said Forkner. "I started to ride tight halfway after I got to think about it. It's been a long time coming with physically healing from the knee and mentally getting back knowing I can win. I could hear the fans and they pushed me through. I love being able to win in front of my home crowd."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner and McAdoo Match 2019 Finishes in Anaheim

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner and Cameron McAdoo made it through the opening round with positive takeaways after finishing fifth and sixth, respectively, at Angel Stadium. The first round of the season always brings nerves and uncertainty, but the duo still managed to show speed on the very technical track. In the end, the pair ended up with the same finishing positions as their counterparts in 2019, which still resulted in a championship fight.

Austin Forkner

After two seasons competing on the east coast, Forkner made his return to Anaheim where he made his professional supercross debut. The rider from Missouri was ready to get back out on the track after taking the whole summer off to rehab a knee injury. With no main event gate drops since April 27, 2019, you wouldn't have known it with Forkner nearly taking the holeshot in the main event.

He quickly made his move into the lead and kept the pressure from second at bay. With roughly five minutes left in the race, Forkner went into a Tuff Block and was forced off his bike. He rejoined the race in third where he would finish, but was eventually docked two positions for cutting the track and finished the night in fifth.

"It was a split-second decision to be as safe as possible," said Forkner. "That's what they always tell us to rejoin safely and with me pointed backward and slightly left, I thought that after the next rider went by I would be fine. I didn't gain any position by doing what I did. It's a bummer they (the officials) didn't feel the same way. After knowing I was able to put a good pace out front, I'm more fired up than ever to get back out there next weekend."

Cameron McAdoo

McAdoo was making his team debut in Anaheim and was excited to start racing aboard his new Kawasaki KX250 machine. McAdoo didn't get the start he wanted in the Main Event but raced into the top 10 after the first lap. By Lap 5 he was in sixth position, keeping pace to come across with a solid result in his first outing with the team.

"After so much preparation, it's nice to finally get on the track and get a finish under my belt," said McAdoo. "We took away a lot of good from this round that I'm hoping we can work on this week to go after an even better result. I would love to be challenging for the podium and proving to these guys that I am able to run up front."
