The victory is Richardson’s third in just 11 days, all a part of an electric summer campaign for the Australian which has been highlighted by nine Top 5 finishes since the month of June.

After fracturing his pelvis at the Built Ford Tough Series stop in Tacoma, Washington in April, Stetson Lawrence (Williston, North Dakota) finished third in his first event back from recovery.
