Madera, CA (January 20, 2020) – H.E.P. Motorsports returned to Anaheim for the third round of the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series. Ryan Breece had a formidable night jumping out to impressive starts on his Suzuki RM-Z450; finishing 20th overall in the 450cc premiere class. Kyle Cunningham continues to show his ability on his Suzuki RM-Z450 despite missing the main. Adam Enticknap returned to the team coming off his injury suffered prior to the season opener. Max Anstie continues to heal as he looks to rejoin the team stronger and healthier.
The team welcomed back Ryan Breece, who missed the last round in St. Louis finishing up his Championship in the German ADAC series. Breece continued to demonstrate promising potential on his Suzuki RM-Z450 by having a productive night finishing 20th overall in the 450cc premiere class.
“A2 was a step in the right direction for me,” said Ryan Breece. “Getting in the main event was a priority to me. I was able to get good starts on my Suzuki RM-Z450. I am excited for Arizona and look forward to carrying this momentum into the next round.”
Kyle Cunningham came up short in Anaheim missing the main event. The veteran Cunningham was close to transferring to the main. However, a crash cost him to lose key a qualifying spot.
“Bit of a bummer this weekend,” said Kyle Cunningham. “Qualifying wasn’t bad for me but I felt that I struggled on the track most of the day despite that I still put myself in qualifying position during the LCQ. I made a mistake that ended up costing me the main event. With that being said, I learned a lot of things this weekend. I’m looking forward to making a few changes this week to come out and get it done in Glendale.”
Adam Enticknap returned to the team coming off an injury that occurred before the first round in Anaheim. Enticknap raced well for his first time back but missed the main by one transfer position.
“Super stoked to be back racing,” said Adam Enticknap. “The injury to my arm before A1 was a bummer, but I got my arm feeling better. Getting used to my bike in a race setting was a real confidence booster as I get healthier moving forward. My Suzuki RM-Z450 was great. I had my best starts in two years. I’m looking forward to Arizona.”
H.E.P. Motorsports moves onto Glendale, Arizona for the fourth round of the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series. Expect to see Breece carry his momentum over, and for Cunningham and Enticknap to get back on track this Saturday.
“Glad to have three guys back on the track,” said Team Manager, Dustin Pipes. “Adam rode well considering his injury and the expectation for him is to only get better from here. Tough night for Kyle. Anaheim has gotten the best of him this year and I’m sure glad we are not going back. He is without doubt a main event guy, but mistakes in qualifying positions have hindered the start to his season. Ryan has come back confident after wrapping up his Supercross title in the German ADAC Series. With his great starts, I only expect him to get better the more time he has on the chassis. Once all the pieces come together, the team will be sitting nice.”
