SX2 Main Event:
As the SX2 riders lined up on the gate for their main event all the attention was on Championship leader Hayden Mellross and Jackson Richardson who sat six points behind him in the standings.
The only other rider with a mathematical chance at the win was last nights winner Gavin Faith but would pretty much need a DNF from Mellross and Richardson to be in with a chance.
When the gates dropped it was Mellross and Faith who left turn one side by side with Faith taking the lead into the tunnel.
Cachia sat in third position ahead of Ford Dale while Richardson was buried at the rear of the field.
At the start of lap three Richardson made a move on Jordan Hill for 7th with Ravenhorst the next on his list.
By lap five Faith was clear out front with Mellross in a safe second place the length of the whoops of third placed Cachia with Dale still in fourth as Richardson moved into sixth.
Richardson then quickly made the move past Dale for fourth and set out after Cachia, while Mellross started to reel in Faith up front.
At the half way mark Faith lead by 2 seconds from Mellross with Faith electing to take the Shannons short cut and extend his lead.
On the same lap Richardson moved into third passing Cachia in the whoops.
At the start of lap 11 with the short cut up his sleeve Mellross moved to with in a second of Faith.
Richardson remains a third of a lap behind in third position while Cachia came under pressure from Webster for fourth.
A mistake from Mellross on lap 13 allowed Faith to open back up a comfortable lead.
Then moment later Mellross bike stopped heading into the tunnel, handing second place and the championship to Jackson Richardson.
Faith finished the final lap in the lead to take the win, with Richardson crossing the line in second spot and not realising he had won the 2016 Australian Supercross Championship. With a DNF from Mellross and a win for Faith, Faith secured second in the championship with Mellross relegated to third.
Moments later he realised and celebrated his championship success.
Kyle Webster rouned out the podium in third.
Following the podium presentation a dejected Mellross returned to the stadium to congratulate Richardson on this championship success with the two riders embracing. Hopefully there is a photo of this moment of sportsmanship!
