Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Riders Eyeing Victory in Salt Lake City2018-04-25 15:38
Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo and Joey Savatgy return to action this weekend as the Western Regional 250SX class hosts its penultimate round at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. After a grueling mudfest at their previous round in Seattle, Cianciarulo and Savatgy are prepared to make a final run at the championship this weekend.
Cianciarulo comes off his third consecutive podium finish and has tallied five podiums on the year. His finish in Seattle pushed him into second overall in the standings at 17 points back of the leader. While Cianciarulo is currently in championship contention, he’s focused on grabbing his first win of the season.
“I’m really happy that I’ve been able to be pretty consistent overall,” said Cianciarulo. “I had two bad races that really kept me from pressuring the points leader, but now that we have two races to go I’m really hungry to get a win under my belt. It would be amazing if we could bring home a win for the team on Saturday.”
The mud got the best of Savatgy in Seattle, but he showcased a never-quit attitude that still has him on the prowl for his second victory of the season. With a dry forecast for Saturday, Savatgy has his eye on returning to the podium.
“It’s been a few rounds since I’ve been on the podium and I’m focused on getting good starts so I can get back up there,” said Savatgy. “Overall I’ve felt good but it’s just not come together. There are still two rounds and we won’t go down without a fight.”
The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders will be signing autographs at South Valley Motorsports in Draper, Utah, on Friday, April 27 from 6-7 p.m.
Saturday’s race from Rice-Eccles Stadium will be broadcast on network FOX or the FOX Sports GO app starting at 5:30 p.m. ET.
