Joey Savatgy Takes Over Oakland And Becomes New Points Leader

CORONA, CA – February 1, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Last weekend the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team was at Coliseum in Oakland, CA, for Round 4 of the 2016 Monster Energy AMA Supercross FIM Championship. Joey Savatgy dominated throughout the night and was deservedly earned a 1st place podium finish and overtook Cooper Webb’s points lead for the 250SX series. Chris Alldredge also had a solid performance, finishing 20th after getting stuck at the start in 22nd. The team is looking to solidify a few things, continue practicing and head to Round 5 in Arizona next weekend with confidence and momentum.



Hard Work Pays Off For Savatgy
Joey Savatgy enters every race with the mindset of winning and this weekend it showed, as a huge win is exactly what he got! Savatgy earned his first career Monster Energy Supercross 250SX victory, dethroning Yamaha rider Cooper Webb, and taking over as the current points leader for the West. To start off the night, he took yet another heat race win, and in the main, Savatgy started out in 3rd around the first corner, pushing to advance to second by the 4th lap. By the 12th lap, he was able to take over 1st place and earn the coveted checkered flag.

“Today was really good. Qualifying went well and I earned my first supercross win, and the points lead, so emotions are really high right now. Time to go back to the farm and keep working as hard as we have been.”


Alldredge Pushing Forward And Keeping Positive
Chris Alldredge started his weekend off with a fourth place finish in the same heat that teammate Savatgy took 1st in. Early in the main, Alldredge got tangled with another rider and damaged his bike. He was determined to persevere and finish, even with a mangled bike at 17th. Chris is beginning to ride more comfortable and hopes to build his track awareness and stamina to land on the podium next weekend in Arizona.

“Today I felt the best on the track that I have all year, I have a great team and a great bike, but my results aren’t where they need to be. Its time to put my head down and really focus, I’ll be training hard between now and Phoenix.”


Forkner Dominates AMSOIL Arenacross In North Carolina
Rookie Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider Austin Forker absolutely stomped the competition last weekend at Greensboro Coliseum. Forkner took 1st in his heat race, Main Event 1 and Main Event 2. Austin was on fire all night, but in the second Main Event, we were able to see young guns talent blossom as he took the holeshot and never looked back, leading all 15 laps to capture the win.

“My night was really good, I won my heat race and got the last supercross point that I needed, so I was pumped…I basically sent it in the Main Events, and ended up winning both, my family and I are really happy with the amount of experience I gained from this arenacross racing.”
