During the 250 main event at the Arlington 3 SX, Hunter Lawrence did what used to be lights out for a SX rider: he flew over a bowl turn. Now, though, we have the bowl turn nets, and Hunter’s body along with his main event result and his championship hopes all found out tonight how valuable those nets are.

While running 3rd, Hunter got out of sorts through a rhythm section and because of the nets, only lost two positions to finish 5th after his wild ride.
