Unfortunately, Hunter Lawrence will not take part in tonight’s motos at the Los Angeles SuperMotocross season finale. The reigning AMA Motocross 250 champ and 250SX East champ was already banged up from a hard fall in free practice yesterday. Then in today’s second timed qualifying session, he landed wrong from a jump and aggravated his back to the extent that he’s in too much pain to race.
Lawrence took the red plate last weekend via 1-1 in Chicago. Now, with him sidelined for tonight, the title contention will resume between Pro Circuit Kawasaki´s Jo Shimoda who sits second with 86 points over Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha´s Haiden Deegan with 82 points.
