Brendan Lawson showed up to Hallett Motor Racing Circuit during the last weekend of September for the inaugural installment of The Invite presented by Dunlop. As a regular contender in the CMRA, he didn’t have to travel far with his Suzuki GSX-R600 to the 1.8-mile circuit in Oklahoma, registering to compete in the Superbike 600 Amateur class. After hitting the track on Friday for practice, Lawson was ready to go racing with two six lap sprints on both Saturday and Sunday, totalling four races throughout the weekend. In the first race, the Suzuki rider got off to a decent start from his qualifying position on the grid and settled into 2nd position in the Amateur standings early on. He was able to hold a strong pace and turn consistent lap times until the checkered flag, even battling and beating some of the Expert class riders in the process on his way to a 2nd place finish. Lawson ran a similar pace in race two and it was a carbon copy of the first race, producing a strong 2nd place result at the end of the six-lap sprint. As the third race got underway, it was apparent that the Suzuki rider had found another gear on the track as he knocked more than one full second off of his previous best lap, propelling him forward to another solid 2nd place result as well as 8th overall in the outright standings. Lawson managed to stay consistent in the last of the four races, improving his overall position in the race one better again with a 7th place finish and yet another 2nd in the Amateur division.
