450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS // 2023 BUDD’S CREEK NATIONAL
With the 450 Championship being locked up by Jett Lawrence last weekend, this usually would take the stress off a rider. But Jett still has a list of challenges ahead of him. Coming into this moto, he has a streak of 18-18 moto wins so far this season, and if he can maintain this streak for two more rounds, then he will have completed a perfect season, something that very few have ever done in the past, never in a rookie season. The competition is still stiff as Chase Sexton, Dylan Ferrandis, and Jason Anderson would all like to check a win off their list this season and boost some forward momentum and confidence headed into Supercross.
Building for next season is all riders liker Aaron P;essinger (7) can do now. With Jett Lawrence solidifying the Championship at the Unadilla National, the rest of the field must race for themselves and the position they would like to have onboard a team headed into 2024. There is no Championship on the line, but every position still matters. These riders still have reason to put up a good result, and it should be interesting to see how things shake up concluding the season.
