The battle for victory in both the 450 Class and 250 Class came down to the wire at Prairie City SVRA, resulting in two well-earned victories.

While point leader Chase Sexton once again established himself as the rider to beat in both motos and led most of the afternoon aboard his Team Honda HRC machine, he came up short in his bid for victory. Instead, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jason Anderson and Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing’s Eli Tomac walked away with the moto wins, with Anderson finally emerging with his first career overall victory after 12 years of trying.

One week after he opened his title defense with a dominant performance, Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence came to Hangtown feeling less than 100% as he fought through illness. The Australian showed the resolve of a champion throughout the day and kept himself in the thick of the hunt, thanks largely to a pair of strong starts. Lawrence put himself at the front of the field in Moto 2 and withstood all challenges to capture another victory on an afternoon when he was nowhere near his best.
