Round 8: Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship highlights

The 50th Anniversary of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, saw a notably competitive afternoon of racing in its return to the West Coast at the MotoSport.com Washougal National, presented by Peterson CAT. The eighth round was expected to be filled with excitement at the tree-lined Washougal MX Park and the legendary Pacific Northwest venue lived up to expectation.

450 class

Coming into Washougal, no rider had been hotter than Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing's Eli Tomac, but he was forced to go bar-to-bar with championship rival and Team Honda HRC rider Chase Sexton throughout the afternoon. The division leaders duked it out over the entirety of both motos and ultimately traded moto wins, with the edge going to Sexton by virtue of his triumph in Moto 2. It signified his second victory of the season, ending Tomac's four-race win streak, and gave the Honda rider back-to-back wins at Washougal.

Team Honda HRC rider, Chase Sexton, wins his second race of the season.
