Jacob Hayes Wins 2018 AMA Arenacross Championship in Las Vegas
Team Babbitt‰Ûªs/Monster Energyå¨/Kawasaki rider Jacob Hayes raced his KX250F to a 2-1 finish Friday night to earn the 2018 AMA Arenacross Championship at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This was Hayes‰Ûª tenth win of the season and the eighth Arenacross title in nine years for Team Babbitt‰Ûªs/Monster Energy Kawasaki. GPF Babbitt‰Ûªs Online Kawasaki supported rider, Ryan Breece followed suit to win his second consecutive 250AX Lites West Championship.

Hayes entered the race one point out of the championship lead and 250AX Main Event 1 saw him capture the holeshot and lead the field through the technical Orleans Arena course. He led for eight laps before being passed and sliding back into second place. Hayes would go on to finish second, with Kawasaki riders Travis Sewell in fourth and Gared Steinke in sixth.

Heading into the second 250AX Main Event, all Hayes had to do was start the race and he would become the 2018 250AX Champion, but Hayes wanted to end the best season of his career in dominant fashion. When the gate dropped on Main Event 2, it was once again Hayes capturing his second holeshot of the night.

Hayes raced his way to his tenth main event victory and was crowned the 2018 AMA Arenacross Champion. Sewell went on to finish 4-3 for third overall, while Steinke finished 6-13 for ninth.

‰ÛÏThis is a dream come true,‰Û
