Monster Energy AMA Supercross heads to the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis this Saturday, with HRC Honda’s Jett Lawrence grabbing the first east coast win of the series.
Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner stormed the holeshot ahead of HRC Honda’s Jett Lawrence and the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s RJ Hampshire, as Lawrence made a quick pass on Forkner in the opening few corners, as his team mate Cameron McAdoo charged forward to move up into third position.
Meanwhile Max Vohland retired from the main event, which looks like he had gone down on his shoulder, as Lawrence then started to pull away in first place ahead of Forkner. Star Racing Yamaha Jeremy Martin started to put the pressure on McAdoo, as Rockstar Energy Stilez Robertson chipped away in sixth place despite only getting five days prep in for the first east coast round.
Lawrence easily claimed his first 250SX Main Event win of the season, followed by Forkner and McAdoo, Martin and Hampshire rounded out the top five.
