It was a disastrous second round of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship for Jett and Hunter Lawrence.
Jett Lawrence ran into bike problems in both races due to the incredibly muddy conditions, and ended up out of both races.
“Most people see I am a pretty fun, easy going person but honestly these walks from the track after slugging your guts out through the week and race day takes everything in you to not smash your helmet on the ground or scream in frustration!” said Jett Lawrence. “My mistake was one tip over in each moto, and that popped the radiator protector thingy out which spiked the engine temp. I felt it right away, so I tried to nurse the bike the best I could but the bike overheated. I had two DNFs late in both motos, a lot of work just to end up with disappointing results. That’s what can happen in mud races but it’s so frustrating!”
Older brother Hunter popped his shoulder out of joint while running up front in moto one, which ended his day. He had the shoulder looked at on Monday and found no major damage, leaving him day-to-day. Hunter will attempt to ride later in the week, and will then determine his status for this weekend’s Ironman National in Indiana.
