Aussie brothers Hunter and Jett Lawrence take honors in the AMA Pro Motocross 250 division at Indiana’s Ironman National.

Jett Lawrence takes the overall win and Hunter finishes on the podium at the Ironman MX, round 11 of the AMA Pro Motocross 2022

The overall-win puts Jett in a commanding position heading into the final round, where he only needs to score nine points to win the 2022 National Championship.

The 250-class racing began with Jett running sixth in the early going, but when things settled down he began a relentless charge that carried him to the lead by the halfway mark. From there, he rode comfortably to a winning advantage of nearly seven seconds. Hunter suffered a poor start and charged to a third-place finish, but he was penalized two points for jumping during a wheels-on-ground signal.

In moto 2, Jett had a poor start leaving him outside the top 10, while Hunter was in the top three. Jett his his stride and by lap 11, the brothers were second and third, crossing the finish line in that order.

The event marks the eighth time this year that Jett Lawrence posted an overall win, making a total of 13 in his career.

“It was a pretty good day” said Jett, “back to the normal consistency. I had a decent qualifying, and then in the first moto I was around sixth place on the start and made my way through to first; I had a really good flow and kind of rode my own race. In the second moto, I had a good jump, but then everyone went by and I was like 11th. I struggled with flow in the first few laps and actually went back a few positions. I finally caught a flow and was able to make my way through to third; by that time, Hunter and Jo [Shimoda] were already gone, so I was just happy with the overall win. It wasn’t too bad—good to be back on top of the overall box. Next week, we’re just going to treat it like a normal race—try to win and have fun.”

Hunter Lawrence is now third in the championship, only seven points behind second place.

“I got docked in the first moto, but it is what it is.” said Hunter “It was a tough second moto—it’s not easy when you’re not getting starts, because the top guys just get away so easily. We’re still carrying some good momentum, so we’ll have a good week of recovery and then come out swinging at Pala.”

Team Honda HRC topped both classes in the AMA Pro Motocross round, with Chase Sexton also taking the honors in the 450 division. This was the fourth time this season that Sexton has notched a 450 overall win, and the sixth time in his career.

Jett Lawrence has a commanding 41-point advantage in the 250 class with only one round remaining in the 2022 AMA Pro Motocross series.
