Just two rounds remain for the 2018 MotoSport.com Pac West Motocross series as MotoWest MX Park hosts Round 6 on Sunday in Bremerton, WA.
Riders can expect better weather this weekend compared to the blazing hot temperatures for Round 5 held last month in nearby McCleary, WA at Grays Harbor ORV. More than 50,000 gallons of water helped keep the track in racing condition something organizers likely won't need this time around.
"The day was safe and challenging as riders did their best to beat the heat," said Brian Nilsen, co-founder of the racing series with Ryan Villopoto. "The forecast (this weekend) calls for cooler weather which will help the dry conditions in August tremendously."
The better riding temperatures should also help fill the gates and Nilsen said riders can expect some new track changes for Sunday including two new rhythm sections, a few re-shaped jump features and a new start stretch.
"We have been watering all week to prep," Nilsen said. "We hope the changes will be welcomed by the racers."
Just as with all rounds in the Pac West series, riders can spend Saturday riding the track as practice for Sunday and anyone wishing to come out and ride whether or not they plan to race on Sunday can attend the Saturday practice day. Gates open at 4 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. Saturday and 6:30 a.m. Sunday. The optional practice day costs $35. Race fee costs $35 plus a one-time $35 membership fee (if not paid at previous rounds) and a $15 entry fee charged by the track. Riders must race in a minimum of six rounds to qualify for year-end awards.
