Jett Lawrence seemed to have the field covered despite close battling during the 250SX Main Event, claiming another 250SX Main event win.
When the gate dropped in the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Jett Lawrence was credited with the holeshot but Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Stilez Robertson jumped past into the lead.
The two battled for the opening laps with Lawrence taking over the spot for good at the end of the first lap. Troy Lee Designs Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Pierce Brown was next to get around Robertson with Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Cameron McAdoo getting past and into third before two minutes ticked off of the clock in the fifteen minute plus one lap race.
At the races midpoint Brown was slowly chipping away at Lawrence’s three second lead. Then a lapped rider prevented Lawrence from jumping the finish line and Brown was on the Honda’s rear wheel. After some close battling Lawrence inched away as McAdoo caught Brown’s rear tire. With just over four minutes left on the clock McAdoo took over second but wasn’t able to close on Lawrence. The finish extended Lawrence’s points lead to eight after four rounds of the nine round regional series.
