MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli, the Alliance of Action Sports, present the Rockstar Energy Washougal Highlight Video from Saturday’s Peterson CAT Washougal National. The eighth round of the 2011 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship from Washougal MX Park featured an incredible day of action, as well as a shakeup in the 450 Class championship.Coming into Washougal with three consecutive overall victories at the facility since 2008, Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey not only looked to maintain his dominance in the Pacific Northwest, but also build on some championship momentum on the heels of an impressive victory the week prior. Washington native, and Monster Energy Kawasaki rider, Ryan Villopoto looked to challenge Dungey and claim an inaugural win at his hometown track. After a win in the opening moto, Villopoto looked to be in position to accomplish that goal, however, Dungey fought back to win Moto 2 and tie his rival in points on the day. By virtue of the second-moto tiebreaker, Dungey took the overall. The duo’s strong outing vaulted both riders ahead of TwoTwo Motorsports/Bel-Ray Racing’s Chad Reed in the standings, resulting in just a nine-point deficit between the three riders.
In the 250 Class, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki remained undefeated in 2011, through eight rounds of competition. Blake Baggett was able to secure his series-leading fifth win of the summer, but not without a strong challenge from teammate Tyla Rattray, who battled until the finish in his quest for the overall.The video is narrated by NBC and SPEED television host Jason Weigandt and includes racing highlights from the 450 and 250 classes.
