  • McAdoo took his first win of the season with the Triple Crown win
  • McAdoo finished with 1-2-3 scores
  • Hammaker overcame to finish ninth overall with 3-14-9 race scores

 

INDIANAPOLIS (March 17, 2024) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Cameron McAdoo continued the team’s Triple Crown win streak by claiming the overall victory inside Lucas Oil Stadium, which helped propel him into a two-point championship lead in the Eastern Regional 250SX standings. The round was about consistency in Indianapolis, and McAdoo was able to stay out of trouble to finish with 1-2-3 main event scores. Teammate Seth Hammaker started well with a third place in Race 1 but had to overcome some mistakes to place his KX250 inside the top 10 in ninth overall (3-14-9). Hammaker remained sixth overall in the standings.


The second triple crown of the season was the first and only for the Eastern Region, and McAdoo entered the race with confidence as a previous winner in the unique three main-event format. When the Race 1 gate dropped, McAdoo found himself at the front and quickly made the pass for the lead after only one lap, racing to the checkered for the win.

The second race was intense from the start, with McAdoo and Hammaker in the top five and moving forward. McAdoo was able to move into second after Hammaker went down, and he held a good pace until the finish, claiming the runner-up spot in Race 2. It all came down to the final race as he and another rider were tied for the lead. McAdoo raced to the first turn and avoided a crash, coming out in fourth. He moved up to third after two laps and, with his biggest competition behind him, rode smart and brought home his first win of the season on a Race 3 third-place finish.

“This win feels incredible,” said McAdoo. “All season I’ve been trying to have a grateful attitude, knowing I’m in a great position to be healthy and on the podium. But this win is amazing. I have such a great support system behind me, from my wife to family to the team, that has stuck with me through the highs and lows. I don’t take for granted having the red plate, and it will be nice to be able to leave on this good finish as we head into the break.”


The night started well for the two-time podium finisher Hammaker, who claimed third in the opening race, but it didn’t come easy. A mistake early on saw him running outside the top 10, but he didn’t quit and made it through the pack to claim the final podium spot in Race 1.

Hammaker had a great start to Race 2 in third and was closing in on second when he went down in a rhythm section. He quickly was back up but couldn’t race as hard as before, taking 14th in the second main event. The night’s final race was pivotal for many as it included the only first-turn crash, which caused Hammaker not to gain as much ground at the start. He came around 16th after the first lap and once again used his grit and determination to climb the leaderboard and made it inside the top 10 in ninth, finishing the night ninth overall.

“Triple crowns are fun, but one mistake and it can cost you,” said Hammaker. “I made my own mistakes and was caught up in others, so the night was tough overall for me. I felt good in that first race, but the mistake in the second race really set me up for a tough rest of the night. It was good to still bring home a top-10, but after getting on the podium the past two weekends, that’s where I know I need to be. We’ll take some time to get back up to pace over the break and come out swinging in Foxborough.”
