Massive shakeup in the 250 championship in the first moto today at round 9 at Unadilla.
Hunter Lawrence entered the afternoon with a slim three point lead over Haiden Deegan. Hunter got a terrible start in the moto while Deegan was losing ground early.
Lawrence passed Deegan and then the rookie found his stride and the duo made their way to second and third late in the moto.
With just two laps remaining, Deegan suffered a mechanical while running third and was credited with 38th.
Lawrence finished second to race winner Levi Kitchen and now holds a 25 point lead over Deegan.
