Valencia, California – Yamaha of Troy (“YOT”) regrets the unfortunate off the track action of their recently crowned 2008 Supercross “Lites/West” Champion, Jason Lawrence, at Freestone National MX in Wortham, Texas this past weekend.
YOT does not condone the type of behavior that Lawrence displayed and as a result has taken steps of their own to rectify the situation immediately, and have implemented policies and procedures so as to eliminate these types of unfortunate situations from occurring in the future.
Lawrence deeply regrets his off the track actions this past weekend and wants his fans and fellow racers to know that he’s extremely sorry to all, and sees this as a wake-up call. He realizes since winning the 2008 Supercross “Lites” Champion just a few short weeks ago he is not just another racer on the track anymore, but rather a Champion. He now has everyone watching his every move, and is very aware that he is being looked at as a role to young racers coming up aspiring to be a Champion, just like himself.
