202 FOX RACEWAY NATIONAL II // 250 OVERALL RACE RESULTS

The last AMA Pro Motocross race of 2022 was held on a hot day at Fox Raceway in Pala, California. Even though the factory Honda rider, Jett Lawrence has had a dominate season, the last fews races haven’t gone the way he wanted which made the championship crown come down to the last race. I’ll Jett had to do was score inside the top 12 in the first moto and the Australian would once again reign champion of the 250 National class. It was the Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders of Jo Shimoda that had the only chance of hope to take the title, however his changes were bleak. Although was have seen bigger reaches of championship hopes in motocross history. Here is how the last 250 National played out.
