Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence swept both motos of the Fox Raceway National on Saturday to kick off the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship. The 1-1 performance extended Lawrence’s consecutive moto wins streak out to 24 wins as he now ties James Stewart for the third longest streak in series history.

It wasn’t a totally dominant day for Lawrence as he had his teammate and brother Hunter Lawrence on his heels for much of the first moto, while Red Bull KTM’s Chase Sexton pushed him all the way home in the second moto.

Hunter Lawrence would nab second overall on the day with 2-3 scores giving Jett and eight-point advantage in the championship from the get-go. Sexton rounded out the podium with a 4-2 result after he came from a crash in the first lap of the first moto all the way back to fourth place by the end.

Phoenix Racing Honda’s Dylan Ferrandis finished up P4 with 7-5 finishes while Troy Lee Designs Red Bull GasGas rider Justin Barcia went 6-6 to round out the top five. Red Bull KTM’s Aaron Plessinger was a strong third in the first moto but crash in the first turn of the second moto and could only manage his way back to 12th, ending the day eighth overall.

Justin Cooper put his Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing bike in sixth overall with 5-8 scores ahead of Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jason Anderson in seventh, Plessinger in eighth, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Malcolm Stewart in ninth, and Muc-Off FXR ClubMX Yamaha’s Phil Nicoletti rounding out the top 10.

Jett Lawrence now rolls into the second round at Hangtown next week with the perfect streak still alive as he eyes to keep the ball rolling in Northern California.
