HRC’s Hunter Lawrence put together a solid victory during AMA Supercross’s return to Seattle for round twelve of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series.

It was the Australian’s first time racing in the Emerald City, as the series returned after a two-year absence. Lawrence was back a bit off the main-event start, ending the first lap in fourth place. Lap 3 saw him get by Jo Shimoda for third and, when points-leader Christian Craig went down at the end of the same lap, Lawrence moved up to second. He then began stalking the leading Michael Mosiman, and he took over the lead in a corner on lap 8. Through the race’s latter half, Lawrence settled in and rode fast but controlled, navigating lapped traffic well and holding off his challengers to earn his second win of the season.

“We were grafting all day, to be honest – every session, we were chasing the track, chasing the bike, making changes.” said Lawrence. “It’s kind of nervous, not knowing the outcome. We had to have a lot of faith in the team, and we all worked really well – it felt really good for the night show.”


“My line in the whoops may not have been the fastest, but I knew it would be okay if it was my most consistent line. I’ve still only done 17 main events, so I’m still learning. Honestly, I’m just trying to better myself every night and during the week, build and be a better rider in the future.”
