We stopped by the GEICO and AMSOIL Honda race shop to get the full rundown on Jett Lawrence's Honda CRF250R.
The AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships at Loretta Lynn’s Dude Ranch are upon us, and one of the racers expected to contend for the premiere championships at the ranch is 16-year-old Australian Jett Lawrence. Younger brother of GEICO Honda team rider Hunter Lawrence, Jett is often referred to as the more aggressive and hard-charging of the brothers.
The AMSOIL Honda team is one of the largest factory supported efforts in amateur racing, with Jett, Joe Shimoda, Carson Mumford, and Hunter Yoder all pitting beneath the team’s semi awning. That said, building the most effective race bike at a reasonable expense is the team’s number-one priority when it comes to racing. Just before the team rig began the long trek from Corona, California, to Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, we stopped by the immaculate GEICO Honda and AMSOIL Honda race shop to take a closer look at the bike Lawrence will race at the ranch. AMSOIL Honda team mechanic Christien Ducharme built the number-49 CRF250R and was glad to give us a breakdown on what the younger Lawrence brother will line up on this week.
