Yamaha of Troy’s Jason Lawrence Takes SX Championship Winning Momentum Outdoors!

Valencia, California – Jason Lawrence came out swinging this past weekend at the opening round of the 2008 AMA Motocross National Championship series at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California, carrying that same speed and continued momentum that took him to his first AMA Supercross “Lites” Championship just four short weeks ago.

By coming out of the gate first and never looking back, Lawrence took the first moto win with ease, despite experiencing problems with his transmission jumping in and out of gear. And after changing to his back-up engine in-between races, Lawrence rode to a well deserved third place overall on the day, and now sits just one point out of the series points lead with eleven rounds remaining.

The second round of the series will be held this Sunday, June 1st, 2008, at the classic Hangtown Motocross National at Prairie City SVRA Park, located in Rancho Cordova, California, a track that Lawrence really likes.
