Jett Lawrence and Hunter Lawrence went 1-2 in Denver as Jett took a massive stride towards winning the 450 supercross title in his rookie season.

Hunter holeshot and lead for ten minutes with Jett making the move when he saw Jason Anderson closing in, Jett controlling the race from there with Hunter just a couple of seconds back.

Cooper Webb took fifth but it was revealed he has been riding with a wrist injury and the Star Yamaha rider crossed the line barely able to even hold on.

Teammate Tomac had the crowd cheering as he got into third with Jett in his sights in the opening couple of laps until he slid out and Chase Sexton crashed in the first turn and then again after passing Webb for fifth. A tough night for the last two supercross champs.

Jett said: “I was screaming in my helmet the first lap when it was he and I up front. He was riding awesome. It is an awesome accomplishment for our family.”

Webb said: “It’s not great, I have a thumb injury and tore my ucl, and we tore it worse last weekend. It’s frustrating when you can’t perform, it’s a bummer. It’s 17 rounds and you have to stay healthy and I didn’t do that. It’s a dagger, try to keep my head up, it sucks.”

In the 250 class, Jo Shimoda held off Levi Kitchen (who had to ride with his boot buckles undone) and RJ Hampshire to take a big and overdue win for himself and Honda as Kitchen and Hampshire now head to the final round tied on points for the 250 West title!
