Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Savatgy Ready to Capitalize On The Familiar Georgia Soil
(February 22, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy will tackle the familiar red clay of Georgia as the
Monster Energy Supercross series makes its final visit to Atlanta’s Georgia
Dome. After training in rural Georgia for most of his amateur career, Savatgy is confident as he looks to obtain his first career
back-to-back wins. Teammate Adam Cianciarulo was
satisfied with his fifth-place finish in his first race back, but eager to find
his place back on the podium.
Savatgy started his championship
campaign in stellar fashion, earning his fourth career supercross win in
Minneapolis. With much of his amateur training coming on the red Georgia clay
and now currently training on the Florida-Georgia line, Savatgy
will take advantage of his experience on the soil inside the Georgia Dome.
“It’s going to be really memorable to race in one of the last events inside the
Georgia Dome,” said Savatgy. “I have always loved
that atmosphere and the fans in Atlanta and I’m really hoping we can bring home
one race under his belt, Cianciarulo has started to
shake off the rust and is looking to make his first trip to the podium since
2014. Cianciarulo’s last time to the Georgia Dome
resulted in a second-place finish, something he would like to repeat or improve
upon this weekend.
“I feel like we had a good start to the season,” said Cianciarulo.
“When you don’t race inside a stadium for so long, it’s nice to get one race
done. We just have a few things to work on and I think we can be where we need
Cianciarulo and Savatgy will be hanging out at Motofest
at the Georgia Dome on Friday, February 24 and signing autographs from 6-7
p.m., hosted by Mountain Motorsports. Additionally, fans can meet Pro
Circuit-backed Arenacross riders at the Georgia Dome from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
