The final round  will be at Shepparton’s Goulburn Valley Junior Motorcycle Club on July 19 and 20. 

The 17-year-old leads the A-Lites class by 16 points ahead of Wayne Stewart and Ryan Shadbolt. 

“I’m pretty happy with where I’m sitting at the moment. It’s not bad,” McNally said. “I’m really looking forward to the last round. I like the track at Shepparton. I like how it ruts up. There are fun jumps, and it’s been good to me in the past.” 

McNally won every race in the opening round of this year’s competition with three wins from three starts. He placed third twice at Rosebud in May and picked up another win and two seconds in Colac in June. 

McNally hit the international stage earlier this month in the FIM China International Motocross Invitational Event at the Pinglu International Circuit in Shuozhou. 

He impressively claimed second overall in the 250cc international class. McNally sits second in the under-19s expert class, 31 points behind Jack Simpson.

The final round of the Victorian senior championships will be streamed live online on July 20.
