Hunter Lawrence has had better days but still remains second in the 2022 AMA Pro 250 Motocross Championship.

Hunter Lawrence experienced his worst round of the 2022 AMA 250 Pro Motocross Championship at Southwick with the Championship leader going into the round describing his day as “A rough one”.

Lawrence, who had earned last year’s 250 overall win at Southwick, was hurt by poor starts and a mid-air crash with Stilez Roberston in moto 1 that left him banged up and with a chipped tooth. Despite the scary crash, that saw him hit by a following rider, the Australian rebounded for a solid sixth place finish.

Another poor start in moto two saw him finish seventh, leaving him with seventh overall for the round.

“Rough day. It was great last year, running 1-1, but this year we just sucked,” Lawrence lamented. “It was almost like me and Jett did a role reversal from last year. I’m going to have to go to the dentist this week, after crashing in the first moto—got cross-jumped and then hit by another guy. It is what it is now—I can’t change it. I did everything I could, but it was just a really, really tough day. We’ll bounce back.”

Hunter now drops back behind younger brother Jett in the standings with Jett now holding a 15-point advantage heading to round seven at the Spring Creek National in Millville, Minnesota, next weekend.
