Jett Lawrence wins 250 Futures at Monster Energy Cup | News

Factory Connection GEICO Honda's Jett Lawrence claimed the overall win with a 1-1 finish in the 250 Futures class at the Monster Energy Cup Las Vegas.

Racing on 250cc displacement machines, the 250 Futures class dropped the gate twice for amateur riders on the cusp of starting their pro careers. Lawrence was the standout rider this year. He took a holeshot in the first race to a clean win. Then got a great start in the second race that put him in position to take the lead on Lap 4 and carry that to the checkers.

Bringing enthusiasm and personality to the podium celebration, his first move after taking the 250 Futures National Title was to bite into a doughnut. He explained about his speed and his snack, “I always had the old guy with me, so it helped quite a lot: Johnny O’Mara [the former racer and now trainer]… [The race] went really smoothly and yeah, I’ve just got to thank him. I rode my heart out and I rode for this donut, so I’m going to enjoy it.”
