Honda Sweeps Both Classes as Sexton and Jett Lawrence Emerge Triumphant

 

     
 
WASHOUGAL NATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
In its return to the West Coast the 50th Anniversary of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, saw arguably the most competitive afternoon of racing thus far in 2022 at the MotoSport.com Washougal National, presented by Peterson CAT. The eighth round of the summer was expected to be filled with drama and excitement at the tree-lined Washougal MX Park and the legendary Pacific Northwest venue lived up to expectation.
 
450 Class
Coming into Washougal no rider had been hotter than Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing's Eli Tomac, but he was forced to go bar-to-bar with championship rival and Team Honda HRC rider Chase Sexton throughout the afternoon. The division leaders duked it out over the entirety of both motos and ultimately traded moto wins, with the edge going to Sexton by virtue of his triumph in Moto 2. It signified his second victory of the season, ending Tomac's four-race win streak, and gave the Honda rider back-to-back wins at Washougal.
