Defending Western Regional Supercross Lites Champion Jason Lawrence just phoned the TransWorld Motocross offices, anxious to clear the air about a hot topic on several Internet message boards.
“I don’t know why everyone is so hung up on me,” said Lawrence. “But there’s a lot of talk about me getting suspended by the AMA for getting in a fight with a fan after Anaheim 1. This is absolutely untrue, and I don’t even know where this came from. After the race, I signed some autographs, grabbed a bite to eat with some friends, then went home and got to sleep. The next morning, I was back at the gym with Ryno, training for this weekend’s race in Phoenix.”
A quick call to the AMA confirmed that there has been no talk of such an incident involving Lawrence.
“I know they say that even bad press is good press, because at least people are talking about you,” added Lawrence. “And I am happy that I am front of mind for so many people, but starting hateful rumors on the message board is lame. People will see soon enough that I was serious about everything I said in my New Year’s Day interview video with Transworld. I’d like to thank my great sponsors for standing by me: Boost Mobile, am/pm, and Monster Energy.”
