Popular American Josh Hill has voiced his interest in racing the full 2020 Australian Supercross Championship after making three guest appearances with CDR Yamaha Monster Energy this season.

The former AMA Supercross regular broke through for an incredible podium at the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Melbourne last Saturday night, where Hill lodged a 4-3-2 scorecard across the trio of main events for third overall.

The podium comes after falling just shy at the Wollongong and Auckland rounds, the number 75 rising to the occasion against a number of international heavyweights.

“Everything about this trip has been so much fun,” Hill reflected. “And if the opportunity comes up again I would love to do it as my time here as been amazing.

“It was also good to get on the podium at the biggest race of the season and reward the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy team. We have been close at the other two rounds and I was desperate to give them some decent results for everything they have done.

“I hope to come back next year and do a full supercross season as I can see the sport is growing here. I can see why Justin [Brayton] does it every year – you Aussie people are cool, so hopefully we can work out a deal that will enable me to do it again as I think I have more to give in racing and enjoy my time here so much.”

With just three rounds under his belt, Hill landed an eighth place ranking in the SX1 standings, while he was fifth in the Monster Energy S-X Open International FIM Oceania Supercross Championship.
