Brothers Lawrence in 'Ol USofA.Will Hunter go 250SX West or East?

2018 will See quite some Aussie action in the U.S.
Hunter Lawrence running 250 SX / MX for Geico Honda.
Dean Ferris strong rumours to lineup a SX / MX 450 campaign.
Todd Waters to run a supported privateer campaign in the 450MX Outdoors.
Mellross likley to again run 250 SX / MX.
There is a lot to keep our interest locked stateside in 2018.

DO yourself a favour and listen to the podcast by stateside MX commentator Jason Weigandt and his recent chat to Hunter Lawrence post the MXoN at RedBud.

Which side of the US is Hunter going to lineup for his first ever US SX?
Who knows, but my money right now is on him running the 250East series in 2018.
Just like Chad did in 2002..

Oh and the hot kid of the moment is younger Bro Jett who is running the amateurs for the next couple of years under the Factory Connection Honda banner.
Should be interesting to see him run at the RC organised Daytona SX (Amateurs Sunday), Mammoth Mountain MX, and of course Loretta Lynn's.

Jett will be the next CR22 Ive believed this for years, Hunter is a fantastic rider Jett is Phenominal. I wish they could have stayed under Everts72 but I think Geiko will be a great step for them they are I believe the best junior/ameture development team in the US.

I hope Melross gets a good run finaly he has always had the odds stacked against him each year and finds it hard to get that break through run.

Hunter said on Pulp MX yesterday that he is planning on racing East in 2019. The reasoning is that it gives him more time to adjust to supercross racing.

Lucky guess...or it was obvious ?
Ill look up that episode of Pulp.
Was it informative?
Hows his training going?

BTW Jett ran top 4 in both 250 A & Pro, 450 A and Pro in both MX and SX
at the recent Mini O's in Florida.
Great result considering first up race in the US after what 2-3 mths settling in !
