Luke Clout and Meghan Rutledge have successfully defended their thrones in Nowra to become the 2019 King and Queen of MX.

With in excess of 4000 people attending across the weekend, the 2019 King of MX Final has given fans and racers a weekend to remember, with over $53,000 in cash and prizes awarded across all 20 classes, and two action-packed, 10-minute, $10,000 winner-takes-all feature races.

It was a strong weekend for Luke Clout, taking all three MX1 A-grade race wins to seal the State Title before drawing the 40th gate pick. Selecting a yet-to-be-used inside gate, Luke raced to the holeshot and, ultimately, to the King of MX feature-race win.

"I can't thank everyone enough for their support." Clout commented. "I feel like I'm at the top of my game at the moment and to take home the MX1 State Title, as well as the King of MX race, this year is unreal.

For me, the King of MX has worked out perfectly for my pre-season and mid-season Nationals campaign and it's great to see a state championship with this many people here racing and watching.

"I'm full of confidence right now and I can't wait to go racing again." Clout concluded.

The reigning Queen of MX, Meghan Rutledge, entered the final under an injury cloud after wrapping up the Australian Women's Championship the previous weekend.

However, two from three race wins and a dominant performance in the Queen of MX feature race saw Rutledge take the win and the $10,000 cheque.

"This time last week, I wasn't even sure I'd be able to race after hurting my thumb in Manjimup, so to come to Nowra and take home both the Queen of MX race and the WMX State Title wins is unbelievable." Rutledge said.

"It's been a roller coaster of a year for me so far and, with the support of my family and sponsors, I've been able to achieve my goals and keep the #66 KX250F at the front of the pack."

For the newly crowned Prince of MX, Blake Fox, it wasn't an easy run. A first-turn crash in race one put the 15-year-old in last. However, some strong, smart racing saw the KTM-mounted rider move through the field to finish second. Two impressive race wins later, and the youngster was crowned Prince of MX and the 15 years 250cc State Champion.

Up-and-coming racer Taylor Thompson has made it back-to-back Princess of MX crowns after a dominant performance in the 13-u16 ladies‰Ûª class.

"What a weekend! First and foremost, I want to congratulate the Nowra club, and, in particular, Tyson, the manager of Nowra Motoplex, for turning the circuit into a world-class race track that not only provided awesome racing for the elite racers, but to those in all classes throughout the three days of racing." MNSW CEO Dave Cooke commented.

"I also want to thank all the competitors that raced a qualifier. We had over 1600 entrants in the King of MX this year, not just from NSW but from across Australia, so to even make it to the final was an achievement in itself.

"To our 20 new State Motocross Champions, congratulations. NSW has some of the best racers in Australia, and the depth of talent is amazing. We're dedicated to working hard to grow and improve motorcycle racing and we're already working on 2020 in the Motorcycling NSW office.‰Û
