Factory Yamaha supercross / motocross rider Josh Hill will not be racing this weekend at the Washougal National due to a nagging back injury that he suffered in June, but flared up in the second moto at Millville. Josh has been working with his doctor on therapy and rehabilitation the whole time, but after Millville it was decided missing Washougal and utilizing the two weekend break in the AMA National Motocross schedule would give Josh the best opportunity to heal up and be ready to go when the series resumes at Unadilla on August 15th.
VitalMX test rider and aspiring pro racer Scott Champion will have the experience of a lifetime this Saturday at the Washougal National Motocross, as he will be calling the Factory Yamaha Semi his personal rig for the day. Racing a Full Factory prepped YZ450F and having the complete support staff of Yamaha technicians at his disposal just as it would be for Josh Hill and Broc Hepler, Scott will get to live out every racers dream, to be a “Factory Rider” even if it’s only for the day.
“I still can’t believe I’m getting to race a Factory YZ450F. Getting to ride one for a magazine test would be cool enough, but I’m actually getting to race one at Washougal. This is definitely a dream come true” said Scott Champion.
“We’re glad to have the opportunity to show the public what goes on behind the scenes of a Factory race team during the race weekend. Even better VitalMX test rider Scott Champion will be living out his dream experiencing it from a Racer’s point of view on a Factory race bike”, said Racing Team Manager Jim Perry.
