A few words and photo gallery of the Pro Circuit Race Team throughout 2017.
Arguably the most popular 250 effort, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team made a name for itself throughout the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season. Team members Adam Cianciarulo, Joey Savatgy, Austin Forkner, and Justin Hill all put in consistent work, where they compiled a total of four 250 overall wins and 14 top-five finishes throughout the course of the 12-round season.
“Overall, it was a phenomenal season,” said Cianciarulo. “I was off at the beginning of the season, but we turned it around near the end and won some motos and an overall. It feels great to finish a full season healthy and in the Top 3 in points.”
Even though Savatgy and Forkner encountered some setbacks with injuries, the 2017 season remains one of their best seasons to date. AC, Savatgy, and Forkner will return to make their bid for the 250 Supercross titles, in addition to Martin Davalos who will also make his return to ride under Mitch Payton.

“The 2017 race season was filled with a lot of good memories including Pro Circuit earning its 20th Monster Energy Supercross championship with the Western Regional 250SX Class title. A lot of hard work goes into ensuring the riders are given the best possible machine to battle for wins on the track. Having the support from JE Pistons provided the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders that advantage and it showed. We’ve been gearing up for 2018 and hoping to have an even better season with the return of Adam Cianciarulo, Austin Forkner and Joey Savatgy, while welcoming back Martin Davalos.” – Pro Circuit Race Team
JE also commented on the season: “The team here at JE Pistons has a long history of working with the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Race Team. We would like to congratulate the whole crew on their SX title and an impressive outdoor season, and we’re looking forward to getting back out there in 2018.”
The 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series will pick back up in May at the iconic Hangtown MX in Sacramento, California. In the meantime, the team will also chase the 250 SX title in the Monster Energy Supercross series kicking off at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California in early January.
