BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (March 10, 2024) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Cameron McAdoo and Seth Hammaker both returned to the podium with a back-to-back double podium at the Monster Energy Supercross’ first trip to Protective Stadium. McAdoo’s runner-up spot kept him within one point of the points leader, while Hammaker finished third and moved into sixth in the standings.


It was fun to be in a new stadium, but the weather proved challenging as the area was drenched in the days leading into the round. McAdoo found his rhythm late in the qualifying sessions, finishing second overall. He avoided some drama in the opening heat, finishing second. At the start of the main event, McAdoo was in the top five but quickly found himself in second, where he would maintain and ride home to the checkered flag for the third-straight race. His three consecutive runner-up finishes have helped him stay close in the standings as he remains only one point of the championship lead.

“It’s been a great couple of weeks,” said McAdoo. “We’ve been able to bounce back from that first round, and we are taking it round-by-round. I’d love to get a win, but we’re looking at the long-term goal of a championship, so I have to be patient. The triple crown will be interesting next round.”


Hammaker was on top of the charts during the opening qualifying session and eventually came around to qualify fourth overall. He had a good jump in the heat race but went down in the first turn, forcing him to the LCQ. He gained a win in the LCQ, where he saw the success of the outside gate pick. Hammaker tried the same outside gate pick in the main event, and it worked, earning a fifth-place start. He made it up to fourth by Lap 5 and was patient to let third come to him by Lap 9. Hammaker was strong and held off advances from behind to claim his second podium this season.

“It’s such a great feeling to be up here after starting the night on the ground,” said Hammaker. “I am thankful to get another podium. This track was tough, but we got it done. I know I’m not super close in the championship, but we’ll take it one race at a time and hopefully get up here again next week.”
