AMA Supercross Title The Realisation Of A Dream For Jett Lawrence

Posted:

It was the realisation of a dream for Australian Jett Lawrence to clinch the 2022 250SX East Region Championship one race early.

Lawrence’s crown is Honda’s 11th in the AMA Supercross 250SX East Region. It is his second AMA title, going along with his 2021 AMA Pro Motocross 250 Championship. Lawrence’s second-place finish marked his 14th podium in AMA Supercross.

While the actual result wasn’t the perfect day at the track, as mentioned, second place was enough to seal the deal for the popular Aussie.

“To be honest, I was calmer than last weekend, going into the East-West Showdown. I was just enjoying it, and that helped me have more fun with the track,” Lawrence explained of his weekend. “In the main event I got out of the gate, okay, but I was a bit off-balance. I lost all my traction there, but I was just happy to make it through the first turn. I liked battling with Austin; I think it helped me to not even worry about the championship, because I was more excited about the race. I tried some different lines, made some mistakes, but this track was so about being consistent.

A humble Lawrence, while admitting it was his dream, also praised his team and family for making the dream come true.

“I’ve dreamed of this since I was a little kid,” Lawrence continued. “All the hard work that we and the team have put in, and all the hard times I’ve gone through – this one night makes all that disappear. I just have to say thanks to the team. I wouldn’t be here without my brother; I feel like he should have a number 1 plate too because he’s a big part of this. This one is definitely a lot more than the outdoors [title]; I’ve had a lot of rough runs in supercross, so this is unreal.”

Team Manager Lars Lindstrom was happy for Jett and to be a part of the whole deal, “It was really special to be a part of Jett’s Championship; he deserves everything and has proven to be a level above the other riders in his class. Now we’ll start focusing on motocross so that we can challenge for both 250 and 450 titles this summer!” Lindstrom said.

While celebrations ensued Lawrence still has to line up next week for the penultimate round in Denver before the season concluded in Salt Lake City.
