Irvine, CA - Kawasaki rider Austin Forkner will make his AMSOIL Arenacross debut this weekend in Allentown, Pa. The 17-year-old Missouri native has been part of Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green™ since 2011. Forkner will be throwing his leg over a Monster Energy®/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki KX™250F for the first time as a pro under the lights of the PPL Center January 22 and 23.
“I’m definitely looking forward to it,” said Forkner, “I’ve been working really hard and I’m excited to see how I stack up against the Arenacross racers. My main goal is to earn the points I need to race supercross, but I’m a competitor first and foremost, being at the front is what I strive for. The arenacross series is intense and aggressive, so hopefully I earn my points quickly and learn as much as I can along the way.”
Forkner and Kawasaki Team Green raced to six AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships at Loretta Lynn Ranch and three wins at Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas. Look for Forkner number 214, to make waves this weekend in his much anticipated arenacross debut.
