The contract of Hunter Lawrence has been extended by Team Honda HRC for a further two years through the 2024 season, it was officially announced at High Point this morning.

Honda’s announcement indicated that the deal is in line with 22-year-old Lawrence’s period of eligibility in the 250SX category of Monster Energy Supercross.

“I’m really happy to continue with the team for another two years,” Lawrence said. “I’ve been with Honda for a while now and everyone here has become like a family to me. My team has the bike working well and we have a lot of fun together. I hope to be here for a long time to come.”

Lawrence currently has five 250SX main event wins to his credit and a single 250MX overall, in addition to four moto wins. He finished runner-up in 250SX West this season following a late-season challenge for the title.

“Hunter has an engaging personality that the fans and the team love,” said Brandon Wilson, American Honda’s manager of sports and experiential.

“He has a great head on his shoulders and is surrounded by a phenomenal support group and his performance and improvement in both series make us all really excited for his future. We have a lot of faith in him and are happy that he feels at home with the Honda family.”

Lawrence has been with HRC for the past two seasons alongside younger brother Jett, whose existing contract spans into the 2025 season. The pair currently sit 1-2 in the outdoor nationals entering round four today.
