Lawrence brothers on the podium at final 2021 AMA Supercross round

Posted:

The Lawrence brother Jett (18) and Hunter (41) went 1-3 respectively at the final round, the Dave Coombs Sr. 250SX East/West Showdown.
Jett Lawrence ended the dramatic 2021 AMA Supercross series with a stirring victory in the Dave Coombs Sr. 250SX East/West Showdown during the finale at Salt Lake City‰Ûªs Rice-Eccles Stadium.

The young Australian finished the season third in the 250SX East standings, while teammate and older brother Hunter Lawrence also performed well, taking third in the main and second overall in the 250SX West class.

The highly anticipated 250SX East/West Showdown‰ÛÒwhich pitted riders from both regions against one another‰ÛÒsaw the Lawrence brothers exploit their superior speed in the whoops, with Jett securing the lead on the 17th of 22 laps, after running third in the early going. Hunter was also on the move early on but tipped over while attempting a pass for third and lost two positions. Jett went on to secure his third win of the season, while Hunter recovered to finish third.
Jett Lawrence capped of the season with a win.
‰ÛÏComing into the weekend, I was excited for the Showdown with my brother Hunter and couldn‰Ûªt wait for the main event.," Jett said. "In the first qualifier I got P1 and was feeling a little better on the track and started to get a good flow. The second qualifier was pretty good also; I had a little mistake in a rhythm lane but nothing crazy. Going into the heat race I was pretty excited to get it underway, and it went pretty good. I got second in the heat and ended up getting the third gate pick for the main.

"I was throwing up all through the break to the main, so I was a little nervous and didn‰Ûªt know how I‰Ûªd do, but I was able to dig deep and kind of focus and came out with a win," Jett added. "I was super-pumped from how I was feeling before the race, and to top it off Hunter got third; it was awesome for both of us to be on the box, so the last round ended pretty well, I think.‰Û
Hunter Lawrence finished second overall in the West class championship and third in the showdown.
For Hunter Lawrence it was a good way to finish of the season.

‰ÛÏAwesome weekend in Salt Lake City to finish off the season," Hunter said. "I got P2 in the West class championship, so that was really cool; I‰Ûªm stoked on that. I was pretty good throughout the day and was happy with qualifying and felt really good. In the main event I was in a really good position and just rushed a pass for third and washed the front end out. I dropped back to fifth and took a lap to regroup and breathe, and then put on a push and got myself into third on the last lap. The track wasn‰Ûªt something you could really send it on, so it was definitely about patience and a lot of corner speed--you had to execute your corners really well. Obviously, Jett and myself both getting on the podium was really special.

"What a way to finish out the supercross season! Hunter continued. "The team and everyone was really happy with that, and I can‰Ûªt thank the team enough; they‰Ûªre like a family and they‰Ûªve been awesome, so I‰Ûªm looking forward to the outdoors and just happy to end it on a solid note. Obviously we would‰Ûªve loved to win, but I‰Ûªm looking forward to going racing again shortly.‰Û
