Portland, OR - MotoSport.com continues broad support of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship series returning as title sponsor for the Washougal National, the ninth round in the 12 round racing series.
MotoSport.com has served as a sponsor for the Outdoor Nationals in various capacities over the years but 2018 marks the most ambitious to date for the #1 powersports retailer of parts and gear. Not only has MotoSport signed on as Official Online Retailer for the series and Holeshot Sponsor but also Title Sponsor for Saturday's Washougal National a "home" race for MotoSport with corporate offices less than an hour from the Washington state-based track.
"There's a reason why Washougal MX is known as America's most scenic raceway and for us it just wouldn't be the same if MotoSport wasn't intrinsically involved," said Darren Green, Director of Marketing for MotoSport. "Many of our employees ride there, we have a close relationship with track owner Ryan Huffman and all bias aside it's truly one of the great MX tracks in the country."
Fans of the series and customers of MotoSport can expect genuine involvement from #TheGuysThatRide who will be stomping the grounds all week during the annual Amateur Riding Days which precedes the National event on Saturday. And on race day, MotoSport will host a tent near "The Triple" where supporters of the series and MotoSport can catch a break from the sun and interact with employees.
Additionally, 10-time Motocross and Supercross Champion Ryan Villopoto and star of the MotoSport-produced "125 Bliss" commercial airing nationwide during the Nationals will also be in attendance and signing autographs.
"It was an honor to have Ryan ride for us as we filmed the 125 commercial but to hang out with a multi-time Champion at a track he won in 2013 en route to the title that year has the whole office buzzing," Green said. "We can't wait."
The 2018 Washougal Nationals takes place Saturday at Washougal MX Park in Washougal, WA. An estimated 20,000 race fans turn out every year to watch the best racers in the world compete on a dirt track built into the natural landscaping nestled in between tall fir trees. Washougal is one of the longest running Outdoor Nationals holding its first round in 1980.

MotoSport was founded in Yakima, WA in 1999 by a gentleman named Bill Butcher.
Bill loved riding motorcycles and raced in the expert class in the super competitive AMA District 13 in the late 70s and early 80s. He ultimately founded MotoSport because he believed he could provide a better service to his fellow powersports enthusiasts than the vast majority of local dealers and because he had always dreamed of one day combining his passion with his business prowess. He built the foundation of the business upon a single shared passion for motorcycles and the rest is history, as they say.
Now well into our second decade, MotoSport continues to lead the powersports industry in selection, quality, expertise and customer service. We don't call ourselves "The Guys That Ride" because it's a catchy slogan. When you call for help or advice you'll actually talk to someone who owns, rides and wrenches on a dirt bike, street bike, ATV or side-by-side. You won't find a more knowledgeable staff of Gearheads or a more devoted customer base because those who rely on us for their parts and gear know that with MotoSport, the loyalty is mutual. Our competitive pricing and wide selection of products means you can grab everything from that impossible-to-find OEM bolt to the latest and greatest motorcycle helmet and have it all on your doorstep in days. Were passionate about what we sell because what we sell is fun.
