The final Texas race and round 12 of the 2021 AMA Supercross season saw Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen lead most of the main event before finishing in second place, while his teammate Chase Sexton showed impressive speed all day before suffering a hard crash in the main. In the 250SX West class, Hunter Lawrence had a good day aboard his CRF250R, finishing fifth.
Roczen nailed the holeshot in the main event, with title rivals Cooper Webb and Eli Tomac not far behind. The German was the fastest rider through most of the track, although he lost time in the sand section. After losing the lead seven laps from the end, Roczen held on to finish runner-up, just 1.4 seconds back. Meanwhile, Sexton also rode strong until taking a hard crash in the sand section on lap four and withdrawing.
Running the red plate, Lawrence was a contender for a podium position with only four laps remaining in the 250SX West main, when he over-jumped a triple and went over the following berm, into the catch net. The Australian quickly remounted and salvaged a fifth place finish.
