Determined to gather as many points as possible before the December 5 finale, the riders rode fast and furious around the Waikato Stadium. In the first six-lapper, Reed took the holeshot and won with Simmons and Reardon in third.

During the second race, Craig Anderson rocketed his Cool Air Conditioning Kawasaki to the holeshot and CDR Rockstar Yamaha’s Jay Marmont and Reardon went down in the first turn. Simmonds took over the lead but Reed claimed the front about midway through and finished first leaving Simmonds in second. Shift Motul Suzuki’s Matt Moss, who nabbed the 250cc class championship last week, came home in third.

In the third race, Reed took a flag-to-flag victory with Reardon in second and Pacific Ink Coastal KTM’s Daniel McCoy in third. When the flag dropped for the start of the fourth and final race, Reardon flew to an early lead and got the holeshot, but Reed managed to reel him in the take the checkers. Moss made a pass and crossed the line in second ahead of the Woodstock Honda rider.

Jay Marmont and Daniel Reardon come together and it took some time for both riders to catch their breath.

Once points were tallied, Reed had accumulated the most with Simmonds in second and Reardon rounding out the podium. “It’s so great that we have been able to bring the Monster Energy Super-X to New Zealand and it is really good to get the win tonight. I wasn’t on top of my game at the start of the series and these guys really caught me off guard in the first few rounds. I have found my form now and I am pumped to be going into the finale in Brisbane leading the championship,” said Reed after the race.

In the 250cc class, riders competed in a single 15-lap finale and it was hometown hero Michael Phillips who nabbed the win with McCoy’s teammate, Danny Anderson, in second. Phillips took the overall win and Anderson in second and local rider, Jesse Wiky, bringing home third.
