Geico Honda's Hunter Lawrence claimed his second race win of the season in moto 1 and finished just outside the top five in moto 2 with a sixth place performance. The Australian sits tied for fourth place in the point standings after eight rounds of racing.
"Yeah, it was pretty sick," Lawrence said. "We got a holeshot, and in a mud race your race can go two ways, and obviously you want it to start with a holeshot. I'm pretty stoked on that. The team has been working really hard, and continues to work to get the engine package better. I just tried to stay cool when I was up front. [In the] second moto, my jump out of the gate was pretty good; I just hit a false neutral between second and third off the start, so I was way back. It was just stupid. To throw away a chance at the overall just a few feet out of the gate was just a punch in the gut. I tried to come back through, but the other boys were on it. [We] put ourselves in a great position to win, but to watch it go away, it sucks. We'll come back next weekend with no false neutrals."
