The penultimate round of the Australian SX series has seen Monster Energy Kawasaki racer, Dean Ferris, notch up another race win for second overall in Maitland over the weekend.
A 7th place finish in moto 1 after a bad start saw Ferris turn that around in moto 2 when he took the hole-shot and check out, riding a flawless race to take victory. His starts let him down in the final moto but Ferris put his head down and clawed his way back to 3rd securing second overall for the round.
“It’s my first podium of the series so I’m excited about that. For me to put a whole night together and not lay it on the dirt is a huge plus for me. I’m tied for race wins with Moss but it’s crazy because he’s leading the Championship and I’m nowhere because I’ve pretty much winned it or binned it apart for tonight. Tonight I accepted getting a 3rd and a 7th with the race win. The Monster Energy Kawasaki KX250F is working really well. I’m really stoked that the boys could build me such a great bike,” commented Ferris.
21-year-old Ferris has experienced rollercoaster results since the start of the series but the gutsy Kawasaki rider has not given up and is still searching for that overall win.
The final round will take place at Ipswich QLD next weekend.
