In the second AMA Supercross 250SX West race of the 2022 season, Team Honda HRC rider Hunter Lawrence notched his second podium result, charging to a runner-up finish in Oakland, California.
Finding himself in fifth after the 250SX main-event start, the young Australian turned in an impressive performance, advancing to third by lap four. With six minutes remaining, he and Seth Hammaker battled for second, with Hunter securing the position right before the finish.
“Oakland wasn’t a bad night, we got second overall.’ said Hunter. “Still, I’m definitely a bit frustrated. I had a few more laps than last weekend to work on Seth, and we had a good battle.”
“He was riding really well in the beginning, so I had to keep just pushing through. My start wasn’t ideal, so we’re going to be working on that this week, but we’re fit and healthy. Next weekend we’re moving on to San Diego, so hopefully that will be a good race.”
