Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green’s Austin Forkner Wins Monster Energy Cup Super Mini Class
Irvine, Calif. (October 21, 2013) – The third annual Monster Energy Cup took place Saturday from Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev., where one million dollars was up for grabs. Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green’s Austin Forkner repeated his 2012 performance as he grabbed both holeshots and ran away with both Super Mini race wins to take his second-consecutive Monster Energy Cup Super Mini championship. The Amateur All-Stars class was a crapshoot as the top riders swapped race scores with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Zac Commans taking second overall. The Cup class was full of drama as Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto and Jake Weimer took first and third in Race 1, but were unable to finish Race 2 and 3. Dean Wilson made his return to racing with ninth overall despite a crash in Race 1.
