Spring Creek MX Park – Millville, Minn. – July 16

  • Washougal has hosted AMA Pro Motocross events since 1980, and the facility is celebrating its third decade of hosting American Motocross in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Washougal is known for being one of the most beautiful, yet challenging tracks in the world, and features several iconic obstacles, including Horsepower Hill.
  • Last season, a brand new start straight was introduced at Washougal, measuring over 300 feet in length. It makes for exciting holeshots, and incredible photo opportunities.
  • Ryan Dungey has won three-straight races at Washougal across both classes, dating back to 2008 when he captured his first-career AMA Pro Motocross victory.
  • As a native of Poulsbo, Wash., Ryan Villopoto considers Washougal his home track. In three attempts, he has never won at the facility, and will make his first career 450 Class start at the track on Saturday.
  • Marvin Musquin will make his return to action this weekend, following a thumb injury suffered at Round 2 from Freestone.

  • With a runner-up finish at Spring Creek, Ryan Villopoto has finished on the podium in eight of his nine career starts.
  • Ryan Villopoto is the only rider in either class to finish on the overall podium at each round this season.
  • 250 Class points leader Dean Wilson has finished second overall in five of seven rounds this summer. He has yet to win an overall.

  • Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki has won every 250 Class moto and overall of the 2011 season.
