Last round winner, Jackson Richardson finished up in fifth place on the night after a fall early in the final had him outside the top 10 and struggling to move forward. Richardson fell but was quickly back on the bike and circulating but took a few laps to get back into his full race speed.
He worked his way inside the top 10 and then as the race went on and fitness became a factor, Richardson started to hit his straps and made several late race passes to get into fifth place and hold onto his second place in the championship, just one clear of team mate, Wade Hunter.
‰ÛÏThe positive from the night was that fifth was a pretty good result and reasonable damage control in the points considering I crashed in the final. We worked hard all day trying to get the best set up for the whoops as they were the difference out there and I felt I could improve through them.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm 11 points out of the championship lead so with three rounds to go, it‰Ûªs time to go after some race wins and put some pressure on,‰Û
