250 MAIN EVENT RESULTS // 2023 DENVER SUPERCROSS

The 2023 West Coast Supercross season is coming to close and it all depends on one rider, Jett Lawrence. Jett’s brother, Hunter Lawrence, has already claimed the 250 East Coast title, and for Jett to do the same on the west would require a finish better than 10th place. This should be no problem for the 19 year old Australian as he’s had quite the remarkable streak of podium finishes since 2021. Now, he’s only one more podium finish away from clinching the West Coast title and saying a goodbye to his 250 SX career. In qualifying, he was the fastest rider in Denver, even beating his teammate Chase Sexton. While the 250 West title is almost guaranteed, we’re crossing our fingers Enzo Lopes and Rj Hampshire give it all in Denver.
