CARSON MUMFORD NAMED AS AUSTIN FORKNER’S FILL-IN AT PRO CIRCUIT KAWASAKI
The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki racing team has signed Carson Mumford to compete alongside Cameron McAdoo in the 2023 AMA 250 West Supercross Championship, while Austin Forkner continues his recovery. Mumford returns to Team Green with a proven history of amateur success aboard Kawasaki KX motorcycles. Mumford secured three top-10 250SX Class finishes in 2022 and hopes to continue his success aboard a KX250 when he joins the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team at the rescheduled Oakland Supercross on February 18th.
Mumford will fill-in for the remainder of the 250 West Supercross Championship while Forkner focuses on recovering from the injuries he sustained at Anaheim 1. Pro Circuit and Mumford look forward to the No.52 rider challenging near the front of the pack with teammate Cameron McAdoo.
Carson said, “I’m grateful to Mitch and the whole Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team for offering me this opportunity. It’s a huge privilege to line up on the gate with the support of the most proven team in the paddock and I’m more motivated than ever to show what I’m capable of on the racetrack. The plan is to take a couple of weeks to adjust to everything with the team before we line up in Oakland (February 18th). I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish together when the gate drops.”
