Watch: Honda Racing Presents Jett Lawrence- 2024 Supercross Champion!

Just 20 years old, JettLawrence is only the third rider to secure the premier-class Supercross crown in his rookie season. He also earned the AMA 450SX Rookie of the Year award. Lawrence kicked off the year with a win at Anaheim 1, becoming the first rider to win in his premier-class debut. He added victories in Detroit, Daytona, Birmingham, Indianapolis, Nashville, Philadelphia and Denver. (By comparison, the next-winningest rider scored four victories.) Lawrence collected additional podium finishes in Glendale and Seattle. Over the course of the season, he was the top qualifier at nine rounds, and he earned eight heat-race wins. (He and his brother/teammate Hunter Lawrence swept the 450SX heat-race wins in Seattle and Nashville, becoming the only sibling pairing ever to do so, and in Denver they notched a historic 1-2 finish in the main event.) At eight of the 14 non-Triple Crown rounds, Jett turned in the fastest main-event lap time. Congrats on an incredible season, Jett!
