Hunter Lawrence Takes 250SX West Win at Seattle Supercross

Following a five-week pause in 250SX West Region racing, Team Honda HRC’s Hunter Lawrence put together a solid victory during AMA Supercross’s return to Seattle. It was the Australian’s first time racing in the Emerald City, as the series returned after a two-year absence. Lawrence was back a bit off the main-event start, ending the first lap in fourth place. Lap 3 saw him get by Jo Shimoda for third and, when points-leader Christian Craig went down at the end of the same lap, Lawrence moved up to second. He then began stalking the leading Michael Mosiman, and he took over the lead in a corner on lap 8. Through the race’s latter half, Lawrence settled in and rode fast but controlled, navigating lapped traffic well and holding off his challengers to earn his second win of the season.

Unfortunately, Chase Sexton suffered a hard crash during the final 450SX qualifying session and was banged-up enough that he and the team felt it prudent for him to heal up and come back strong for the St. Louis round in two weeks.
