For three decades, the Pacific Northwest has been a staple of American motocross, and to celebrate the 30 years of hosting an AMA-sanctioned outdoor national, Washougal Motocross Park and MXSports Pro Racing announce the inaugural retro-themed event at the famed Southern Washington track. On Saturday, July 24, the Motosport Washougal Retro National, round eight of the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
As the original action sport, motocross has become one of the fastest growing forms of motorsport in the USA, and for nearly 40 years, American motocross has been the stage for epic races and even greater memories. Throughout that weekend, vintage will be the name of the game at Washougal. Teams and riders will be in the retro spirit with vintage plastics adorning the motorcycles and “old-school” gear featuring the colors and patterns of decades past being worn by the world’s fastest competitors.
Washougal MX Park’s Brian Barnes says “There isn’t a better way to celebrate 30 years of Washougal MX than to host a retro national. This race has such a strong history that the opportunity for the stars and teams of today to pay homage to the legends of the past was simply too good to pass up.”
The stars of American motocross hit the track on Saturday, but the retro activities start Thursday and continue through Friday with the popular and competitive amateur days. Hundreds of the region’s fastest and most passionate riders will take to the track before the pros and get the weekend off to a strong start.
