Southwick, Mass. (June 30, 2019) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo raised the intensity at the sandbox of The Wick 338 to grab his first Moto 1 win of the season, going on to collect his fifth overall win with a 1-2 moto score. With the first half of the season in the books, Cianciarulo now sits 23 points ahead of second place in the championship standings. Martin Davalos had a tough day, finishing 33rd.
Coming into the sixth round, Cianciarulo had taken the overall win four times but had never grabbed a win in Moto 1. That changed on the rutted and sandy track in Southwick as he charged out to his very first holeshot of the season and stepped up the intensity in the first several turns of the race, gaining an advantage over second right away. He kept the charge going all moto and came across the finish line 11 seconds ahead of second.
He obviously had his starts dialed at The Wick 338 as he collected his second straight holeshot in Moto 2 and charged to the lead. He relented the lead on the seventh lap but kept his distance from the next competitor to earn second and take his fifth overall of the season with a 1-2.
“I’ve learned so much since I turned pro and I have an amazing team to lean on to make sure I’m fully prepared each moto,” said Cianciarulo. “After pushing hard in Moto 1 and the track at its worst in Moto 2, I just didn’t have anything to keep the lead, but felt comfortable where I was at. I can’t say enough good things about the team. It just feels so good to be able to bounce back after last weekend. I’m so grateful.”
The day was a tough one for veteran Davalos. He made a few trips to the ground that cost him a better finish, eventually scoring 22-40 on the day for 33rd overall.
“It was a rough day at the wick to say the least,” said Davalos. “I had some good get-offs but I’m thankful to be okay. I’ve been putting in a constant fight this year both mentally and physically but I won’t give up. It’s not in my nature to stop trying. Each weekend is another opportunity to break through.”
