    Washougal was exactly the result Ryan Dungey needed in order to keep his title hopes alive. Trailing Oakley teammate Ken Roczen by 24 points heading into the weekend, Dungey won both motos, while Roczen took two thirds. The win – Dungey’s 30th of his 450 Class career – takes a 10-point chunk out of Roczen’s lead for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship title, with three rounds remaining in the 2014 season. “Today was just about coming in and not worrying about the championship. There’s a lot of racing left [this season],” said Dungey, who won for the sixth time at Washougal. “We just tried to put out our best effort and we did that. We got great starts and Eli [Tomac] kept us honest in that second moto, but I just really tried to put the hammer down and extend the gap. Fortunately, we did that. I love it here [at Washougal] and this just feels awesome.”

    It was a big day for Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship rookie Eli Tomac at Spring Creek. After taking his first career moto win in the 450cc class by a 16-second margin, he followed it up with a second consecutive moto win and his first 1-1 sweep. “Today was a tough one the way the track was,” said Tomac, who has finished on the overall podium in each of his four career starts. “Going into the second moto I knew I had to get out there and get a good start. We ended up getting the holeshot then the red flag came out and I thought to myself ‘is this really happening?’ Luckily enough I got another one. [Justin] Brayton was right there, but after that I was just hitting my marks and I felt really comfortable.”

Leading the charge is the 450 Class rookie Ken Roczen who extended his championship standing points lead over teammate Ryan Dungey to 26-points with his win this past weekend at RedBud National.
