The season may be winding down, but the racing action is certainly heating up. Washougal is just one of those tracks; incredibly beautiful with awesome natural features built into the landscape which goes in and out of the Pacific Northwest’s giant trees – a bucket list track for any motocrosser. Eli Tomac charged to yet another 1-1 sweep to take the overall. The man was simply on a mission. Ken Roczen continues to kick ass despite his return from injury, and Marvin Musquin showed a lot of speed, but just not enough. Justin Bogle keeps ripping holeshots, but can’t seem to hold on for very long afterwards and ultimately drifts back into the pack.
The 250 class is a bunch of maniacs. These guys are the future stars and holy cow are they going fast. The 250 motos at Washougal were jumbled up a bit with Plessinger finishing 4-3 for first overall, Savatgy went 9-1 for second, and McElrath 1-9 for third. It was all over the place, but it was incredibly entertaining racing.
