2018 BUDDS CREEK NATIONAL | FULL COVERAGE

Aaron Plessinger and his Star Racing Yamaha team knew the math to clinch the title today. Aaron needed a total of 22 points if Alex Martin went 1-1 on the day. Instead of playing it safe, Aaron rode like he has week in and week out and won the first moto which was enough the secure the title. The second moto, however, Plessinger was in no hurry finishing 11th for third overall on the day.

It was the Geico Honda rider of RJ Hampshire who got his first overall win of the season with his teammate Chase Sexton placing second.
