CORONA, Calif. (January 30, 2019) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki's Adam Cianciarulo and Garrett Marchbanks have one more round to showcase their speed this weekend at Petco Park before the series starts to head east. Cianciarulo rolls into San Diego with two wins and the momentum to potentially take over the lead in the championship as he sits just three points back of the leader. Marchbanks returned to the top 10 and is hoping to make Round 5 his best race yet.
The weather isn't looking promising for San Diego on Saturday, but that won't stop Cianciarulo from entering with confidence following his second win last week in Oakland. Getting out front and having clear vision will be one of the keys for the race.
"It's unfortunate to see that rain will likely force us to have our second mud race, but we got through the first one and we'll not only be going after a good result but the win," said Cianciarulo. "It's strange to think this is our last race until the beginning of March when we come back for the showdown. It would be nice to stay in the title hunt going into the break."
The rookie Marchbanks completed his best finish of the season at the opening round mud race and isn't shying away from the bad weather. He's set to make Round 5 a race to remember before he gets his first weekend off in the new year.
"The first several rounds flew by and I can't believe we're already in San Diego," said Marchbanks. "It's been amazing so far to learn and tackle all kinds of scenarios from the rain at the opening round to the triple crown format. I'm ready to put in another good effort."
The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders will be signing autographs on Friday, February 1 from 6 – 7 p.m. at Del Amo Southbay in Chula Vista, California.
Saturday's race from Petco Park will be broadcast live on NBC Sports starting on Saturday, February 2 at 10 p.m. ET.
