When the gates dropped on race two it was Crawford who fired himself to the front of the field with Arbon and Clout in tow. Crawford and Arbon were able to separate themselves from the field and moved into a head to head battle for the overall round win.
As hard as Arbon would try, Crawford was up to the task, holding off his more experienced competitor to take the race win and in doing so becoming the first 16 year old since Troy Carroll in 1996 to win a MX2 round of the Australian national MX championships.
"I am feeling pretty good, though it has not really sank in," Crawford told fullnoise.com.au at the end of the days racing. "After the first moto I knew my speed was good and my fitness was good, so I just had to get a good start and do what I know I do best in the second moto and happily I came away with the win.
"Taking the overall win did not sink in until I got back to my van and started to get changed, it was the best feeling in the world and one I want to continue and hopefully I can carry on and win the championship in the MXD class then back to MX2 next year.
"After winning today here at Swan Hill, going back to MXD and not winning wouldn't be where I want to see, so heading back to the MXD for round seven at Conondale I want to have a repeat of this weekend and hopefully come away with the win."
