Round 11 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship showcased Lawrence as he bagged his first ever 250SX main event win in Texas.

In just the sixth supercross race of his career, Team Honda HRC’s Hunter Lawrence scored his first 250SX win in convincing fashion. The young Australian started in fifth and quickly advanced a spot, then made a block pass for third.

On lap six, he capitalized when the leading duo lost momentum, passing them both to push to the lead. At that point, Lawrence set sail, setting the fastest time of the race on the next lap and pulling ahead to score an emotional victory by over five seconds.

“Amazing day here in Arlington, couldn’t have dreamt it any better,” said Lawrence. “I got off to a good start, made some good passes in the first few laps and just rode my race. I’m extremely, extremely grateful and thankful to do what I’m able to do.

“I can’t thank everyone that supports me enough, everyone in the team and away from the track. It’s a team effort and believing in myself and man, it feels amazing. It’s awesome, and I’m stoked that we could get this one under our belts at round four.”
