Incredible weather and a massive crowd of diehard Pacific Northwest motocross fans provided setting for an incredible afternoon of action at the MotoSport.com Washougal National for the ninth round of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. With its unique setting and racing surface, Washougal MX Park always provides some of the best competition of the season and the 39th running of this legendary event was no different.
In the 450 Class, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac was a man on a mission all afternoon. The reigning series champion and current point leader overcame less-than-stellar starts in both motos to charge to the front of the field in emphatic fashion and earn a 1-1 sweep for his fourth win of the season. He also added to his already comfortable point lead.
In the 250 Class, it came down to a showdown between the championship’s top two riders. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo, the point leader, and Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Dylan Ferrandis enjoyed an epic battle that showed they’re the front-runners in this title fight, but it was the Frenchman who prevailed on this day with his second 1-1 sweep of the season.
See how the action unfolded at Washougal!
