Lawrence Brothers Dominate Opening Round of Pro Motocross at Pala.

Lawrence Brothers Dominate Opening Round of Pro Motocross at Pala.

The Pro Motocross Series got underway Saturday with Round 1 at Fox Raceway in Pala, California, just north of San Diego. All eyes were on both of the Lawrence brothers on their Hondas. Jett Lawrence made his debut in the 450 class after a dominating Supercross season in the 250 class. Hunter continued forward momentum in the 250 class.

In Moto 1 for the 450 class, Jett was out front an easy holeshot. Ferrandis was running second but had no way of catching Jett who was just too fast leading wire to wire. Chase Sexton was able to get around Ferrandis at the midway point and secure second place at the checkered flag. The second moto was a repeat of Jettโ€™s stellar performance. Ferrandis this time put a little more pressure on Jett. Chase Sexton quickly inserted himself into the battle and soon it was Jett vs. Sexton. Jett finished the race with Sexton right on his rear tire coming home with a 1-1 for the overall.

In the 250 class, the first Moto saw Jalek Swoll grab the holeshot. RJ Hampshire soon moved to the lead but went over the bike in a rut. Hampshire and Swoll were able to continue. Hampshire was able to come away with the moto win. In the second moto, Hunter Lawrence grabbed the holeshot and stayed out front winning wire to wire. Hunterโ€™s third place finish in Moto 1 and Moto 2 win earned him the overall joining his brother for the weekend victory.
