LAWRENCES Remember last month when we pointed out how bad the season started for the Martin brothers, Alex and Jeremy? This time it’s an up arrow for another set of brothers, as both Jett and Hunter Lawrence have now won 250SX main events in 2021, making this the first time that two brothers won a race in the same Monster Energy AMA Supercross season. The only other brothers to both have wins are the Vohlands (Tyson and Tallon) and the Stewarts (James and Malcolm), though not in the same years.
RUTLEDGE How did the charismatic and funny TV host of Top Gear and Floor Is Lava become the most polarizing guest pit reporter ever in supercross? We have no idea—we really enjoy Rutledge Wood and the often-overlooked things (flaggers, pit boards) that he loves to report on when he joins the NBC Sports team. But he’s not every SX fan’s cup of Monster Energy, based on some of the oddly hostile online feedback he’s gotten.
We are deeply rooted in Moto—We’ve been here all our lives. Back in 1998 when we turned an underground newspaper into a shiny color magazine, it immediately changed the game with its unprecedented depth of coverage, sense of humor, and access to the sport’s biggest names. Today, our readers know they can go to Racer X Online for all the news, race results, and event coverage they need, and then enjoy even more detail and perspective in the pages of Racer X Illustrated. The mag offers a chance to learn something new on every page and stay connected with the people and personalities that shape our sport—the competitors out on the racetrack, as well as the ones behind the scenes—through our exclusive deep-dive stories and columns.
Our trademark has always been insider knowledge from the experts who are at the races and around the sport. We have long prided ourselves on our unparalleled race reporting and detailed storytelling. We go deep with the riders and teams to provide comprehensive coverage you won’t find anywhere else—all with first-class photography and design. It’s a full education in motocross past, present, and future.
