Jett Lawrence Wins 250SX West at Oakland Supercross

Chase Sexton came in third in 450SX after leading early.

Following a rare second-place overall finish at Anaheim 2 and a two-week break in the 250SX West series, Jett Lawrence returned to his winning ways at the Oakland Supercross, which had been postponed five weeks due to rain. The young Australian took his third victory of the season and extended his title-chase advantage to 20 points. In the premier division, Chase Sexton kept his podium streak alive, taking third place.

Lawrence got a great jump out of the gate to start the 250SX West main event, but exited Turn 1 in third. He put his CRF250R by Cameron McAdoo in the whoops on Lap 3, then took over the lead on Lap 5 when RJ Hampshire went down in a corner. Once in front, Lawrence began pulling away, ultimately winning by over 16 seconds.

Sexton took the 450SX main-event holeshot and slowly but steadily grew an advantage to over seven seconds aboard his CRF450RWE, only to go down with seven laps remaining. The Illinois native remounted in time to retain second, but Cooper Webb made a pass three laps from the end. Colt Nichols was knocked off the track by another rider early on but recovered to finish ninth.
