Jett Lawrence bids farewell to Nashville in the AMA 450 with a win and is now the sole leader in the championship

Nashville hosted another round of the AMA Supercross 450, with Jett Lawrence closing out the main event with the win. The Honda rider was not the only one in the lead, as Eli Tomac led ten laps but was no match for the (now) sole championship leader.

The highly anticipated race of the evening started with Tomac (Yamaha) taking the holeshot at the Nissan Stadium, ahead of J.Lawrence (Honda) and Ken Roczen (Suzuki), but it was the German who became the main pursuer for the #3 in the following rounds.

On lap eight, Lawrence moved back to second place and three laps later took the lead of the race for the first time ever. From the 13th lap (until the last, 20th) there were six different riders in second place as Lawrence continued to extend his lead.

Ultimately, the #18 was the big winner of the round, beating Tomac by 9.323 seconds in second, while Cooper Webb (Yamaha) secured the final spot of the podium. Jason Anderson (Kawasaki) was fourth and Justin Barcia (GASGAS) was fifth.

As for the championship accounts, the leader is only J.Lawrence with 286 points, five more than Webb. Tomac closes the top three with 253.
