No Fear's Jason Lawrence On Track for 2010 AMA Supercross Season Opener
CARLSBAD, CA — No Fear announced today that Jason Lawrence has confirmed he will be racing this Saturday, January 9th in the 2010 Monster Energy® AMA Supercross season opener at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
"The fact that Jason is putting himself out there, at the highest level of competition, just a little more than two weeks after a several-month break from racing is a testament to his new positive outlook on life and his loyalty to those who've stuck by him," said Brent Calliger, Vice President of No Fear MX.
“I’m pumped to be back with No Fear, " Lawrence said. "I’ve done a full circle with gear companies. I know what’s best and now I’m back where I’m supposed to be.”
In a recent interview with TransWorld Motocross, Jason said he felt pretty good the first time he got on a bike — after serving four months in Riverside County Jail as the result of an incident in 2008. "I got on a new 2010 Yamaha and rode for about 40 minutes straight," Lawrence said. "I only stopped because I thought I was about to run out of gas."
Lawrence compared his time away from riding to a typical break that riders often have as a result of an injury. "It was really like coming back after an injury, but I didn't have to do any physical therapy or anything…just had to get my mind re-focused."
While he admits that he may be a little rusty to start the season, Lawrence felt that he "needed to get out and race for myself, my team and my sponsors as soon as possible. My goal for Anaheim one is just to go out there and try to be competitive. Compared to everyone else, I'll be fresh and rested."
