International Coverage Exclusively on SuperMotocross Video Pass
STAMFORD, CT – August 18, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – The penultimate round of the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, will signify American motocross’ annual visit to the greater Washington D.C. area as Southern Maryland’s Budds Creek Motocross Park hosts Round 10 and the Yamaha Budds Creek National this Saturday, August 19. Live, uninterrupted moto coverage of the entire event will stream exclusively on Peacock, beginning at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, while international coverage can be seen exclusively through SuperMotocross Video Pass.
In the midst of a prolific first season of 450 Class competition, Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence became the eighth different rider in the history of the division to capture the title as a “rookie,” doing so two rounds early with an extension of his perfect season. Lawrence captured his ninth overall victory and collected moto wins 17 and 18 to hoist the Edison Dye Cup and move one step closer to completing the sport’s rarest feat. He comes to Budds Creek with one goal in mind, to collect more checkered flags.
In the 250 Class, a stellar afternoon from Team Honda HRC’s Hunter Lawrence saw the elder Lawrence secure his sixth overall win of the season, relying on consistent 2-2 moto scores, and seize control of the title fight after an adversity-filled afternoon by Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing rookie Haiden Deegan. Lawrence brings a 22-point lead into Budds Creek and appears to be in control of his own destiny as the Australian siblings look to become the first brothers to prevail with both championships.
