Portland, OR - Gates drop for Round 9 of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship series on Saturday as the Pacific Northwest racing tradition returns with the MotoSport.com Washougal National in Washougal, WA.

MotoSport.com continues its deep investment in the greatest racing series in the world serving for the second year in a row as title sponsor of the 2019 Washougal Motocross National. The #1 powersports retailer of parts and gear also has the role of Official Online Retailer for the 12-round series and as Holeshot Sponsor. MotoSport, which keeps corporate offices in Portland, OR, less than an hour from the Washington state-based track, has been actively involved with Motocross for years and routinely holds ride days at Washougal MX Park.

"We love the Washougal track and not just because it's right in our backyard," said Darren Green, Director of Marketing for MotoSport. "Washougal is considered one of the most scenic tracks on the circuit and we are proud to not only call it home but to sponsor and have an enormous presence there every year during the Nationals."

Expect MotoSport employees out in force on Saturday greeting fans and customers all around the track grounds and by "The Triple" where the company plans to set up camp. MotoSport considers "Washougal Week" as their Superbowl and will have a presence at the track prior to the Round 9 gate drop during Amateur Riding Days where some staff members might trade their desks in for their dirt bikes and give it a shot against all the local fast riders.

"We think of Washougal as our 'home race' and believe MotoSport plays an integral part to the fan experience and overall success of bringing a Pro National to the Pacific Northwest," Green said. "We sincerely hope to enhance the overall tradition of dirt bike racing not only in our neck of the woods but the rest of the country as well."

The 2019 Washougal National takes place Saturday at Washougal MX Park in Washougal, WA where an estimated 27,000 race fans are expected to watch the likes of two-time defending Champion Eli Tomac, two-time Champion Ken Roczen and perennial challenger Marvin Musquin mix it up. Washougal MX Park is built into the natural landscape and nestled in between tall fir trees giving riders a significant challenge as they weave in and out of the shadows. Washougal held its first Motocross round in 1980 and represents one of the longest running Outdoor National.

About MotoSport.com

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. 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.
