An online auction arranged by the retiring Chad Reed following the St. Louis round of 2020 Monster Energy Supercross has gone toward raising vital funding for the NSW Rural Fire Service.

Reed, originally from Kurri Kurri in New South Wales, wore a special set of Fox Racing gear at round two of the season last weekend in Missouri before auctioning it off on eBay post-race.

The jersey and pant combination netted $3300 US when the auction closed, all of which the proceeds will be donated to the NSW RFS to assist in the devastation that has affected Reed’s home country during recent months.

This season marks the final year for Reed in the American-based Supercross series following a career that has spanned near two decades at the highest level. He’s riding with the Mountain Motorsports cbdMD CR22 team aboard Hondas in 2020.
