Penrite Honda Racing guest Cameron McAdoo has dubbed his SX2 victory on Saturday night at the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney as one of the best of his career.

The American was called into the squad for the final round of the Australian Supercross Championship, replacing injured countryman Bradley Taft.

The number 44 lodged a supremely consistent 2-2-2 scorecard in the Triple Crown secure the overall victory in his Australian debut, edging out two-time Australian champion Jackson Richardson (Penrite CRF Honda Racing) by a slender one point margin.

“I am so happy, this is what we wanted but I didn’t know how I would fair against everyone,” McAdoo explained. “There are some fast guys in Australia and to take the win is amazing. his is one of my best wins of my professional career and I couldn’t be happier for the team and everyone that helped make this happen.

“The team is top class, everyone was so accommodating and I knew we had a competitive package following our first test. We only had to make a few minor adjustments and it was all sorted efficiently. I came into race day really prepared considering the turnaround.”

McAdoo is set to return home to America as Penrite Honda Racing SX1 contenders Justin Brayton and Brett Metcalfe head to New Zealand on 24 November for the S-X Open Auckland.
