career highlights


Austin Forkner started the 2019 Monster Energy®️ AMA Supercross season on fire as he captured wins in the first five of six 250SX East Region races. After a crash in Nashville, his championship hopes were cut short as injury kept him from finishing the season or competing in the AMA Pro Motocross Championship series. Forkner aims to return to his successful status in 2020 and claim what was supposed to be his, a 250SX championship.


2018 was a marque year in the young racer’s Monster Energy® AMA Supercross career, as Forkner would capture his first 250SX career win, finishing the season with two main event wins, three podiums, and never finishing outside of the top 10, giving him a career best fourth overall in the series. During the 2018 AMA 250 Pro Motocross Championship, Forkner was able to earn a top 10 overall finish at eight out of the twelve nationals, finishing the series in seventh place in the standings.


2017 marked Forkner’s highly-anticipated Monster Energy AMA Supercross debut in the 250SX Western Regional Championship. The rookie came out strong with an eighth-place finish at round one in Anaheim and continued to improve throughout the year with his first career podium at round 4 in Phoenix followed by a season-best second-place finish at round 6 in Arlington. Forkner was sidelined at the Seattle round but was able to return for the last two rounds and grab two more top-10 finishes for 6th overall.


Austin Forkner is the most recent graduate from team Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green and proved to be a force to be reckoned with as he captured two moto wins, six podium finishes and was awarded 2016 Rookie of the Year.
