The 2022 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series finale is officially upon us and it’s a hot one!

It was a bright and sunny morning in Pala, CA and certainly the hottest morning the series has experienced in 2022, adding to the anticipation for one more race day. Riders cut in lines during the morning’s practices, when the track was at its best during the early minutes of the first sessions.
Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence was off to a great start at Fox Raceway, as he rocketed to the top of the leaderboards just before the clock ticked down to zero in the second and final session of timed-qualifying. Jett laid down a blistering fast 2:26.061, over half a second faster than the next best time.
Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Justin Cooper worked his way around the technical rutted course and laid down a 2:26.623 late in the final session of qualifying.
