Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s McAdoo Back on the Podium in Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. (February 19, 2023) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Cameron McAdoo returned to the Western Regional 250SX podium on Saturday night after a great main event start and solid ride inside RingCentral Coliseum. The rescheduled round was plenty dry compared to a month ago, with the track offering up especially challenging whoops and rhythm sections. McAdoo rose to the challenge and finished third.

The day started great for McAdoo, who tallied third overall in the timed qualifying sessions. As the gate dropped for his heat race, McAdoo found himself quickly in the lead on the opening lap and held on for over half the race. He made a small mistake that pushed him back to second, but the good gate pick would be important in the main event.

With a challenging 180-degree first turn, the start would be key for the main event. Once again, McAdoo put his Kawasaki KX250 at the front and was second around the first turn. He moved back to third on Lap 3 but kept the intensity up the entire race to claim his third podium of the season.

“Honestly, I’ve been bummed the previous times getting up on the podium because I thought I had more in me, but after what I went through to get here the past few weeks, I’ll take it. It’s been a battle to get strong enough to compete with the best up on the podium. I can’t say enough about every person who has supported my recovery and we’ll be working hard during this break to be stronger when we come back to Seattle.”
