Team Honda HRC released its 2023 roster on Friday ahead of the upcoming SuperMotocross season.
Chase Sexton, who placed third in the 2022 Supercross championship and runner-up in Pro Motocross, will be paired up alongside Colt Nichols in the 450 class on the 2023 CRF450RWE, while former teammate Ken Roczen moves to H.E.P. Suzuki.
Brothers Jett and Hunter Lawrence will switch regions for the 250 Supercross season, with defending East champion Jett Lawrence now racing on the West Region and Hunter racing on the East Region. Chance Hymas will also race on the CRF250R at select Eastern Regional events.
However, when the Pro Motocross season rolls around, Jett Lawrence will set up onto 450 machinery, at which point Hymas will race full-time on the 250 alongside Hunter Lawrence.
“The 2023 season will mark 50 years of motocross for American Honda, and we’re excited to get started,” said Brandon Wilson, Manager of Sports & Experiential at American Honda. “We experienced some good success in 2022, including indoor and outdoor championships in the 250 class, but we’re hungry for more. We’ve got a great lineup of riders aboard competitive machinery, and talented crew and management behind them. Honda has compiled an impressive motocross and supercross heritage over the past half-century, but we’re focused on adding to it as we head into the next 50 years.”
