Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series Statistical Report

Peterson CAT Washougal National

Washougal MX Park – Washougal, Wash. – July 20

  • Washougal has hosted Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship events since 1980 and is currently in its third decade of hosting the Nationals 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.
  • In 32 years of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship competition at Washougal, only two international riders have captured an overall win – Chad Reed in the 450 Class in 2009 and Ben Townley in the 250 Class in 2007.
  • A rider from Pacific Northwest has never won at Washougal in either the 450 Class or 250 Class, as Poulsbo, Washington’s Ryan Villopoto is winless in four starts at his home track. A pair of natives did claim victory in the 13 years of 500cc competition – Eric Eaton, of Tacoma, Wash., in 1985 and Chuck Sun, of Sherwood, Ore., at the inaugural event in 1980.
  • Ryan Dungey has won five-straight races at Washougal across both classes, dating back to 2008 when he captured his first-career victory. He has won five of his six career starts at the track.
  • Ryan Villopoto is the only rider across both classes to win a moto at every round of the 2013 championship.
  • This Saturday, Justin Barcia and Trey Canard each look to become the seventh rider in history to win Washougal in both classes.
  • GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn has secured four holeshots in his last five starts in the 250 Class. Hahn currently leads the 250 Class Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot Championship.
  • James Stewart and Justin Barcia co-lead the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot Championship in the 450 Class through seven rounds of racing.

  • Rick Johnson, Ricky Carmichael, and Ryan Dungey are the only three riders to win Washougal back-to-back in 1983-84 (Johnson), 2004-05 (Carmichael), and 2010-11 and 2011-12 (Dungey).
  • In 2012, Ryan Dungey became the first rider in history to win at Washougal for three consecutive years.
