Washougal National is shaping up to be an intriguing event this weekend, and there’s a lot of excitement surrounding it. Donnie from Roto Moto provides an in-depth look at the recent buzz surrounding the upcoming Washington State national at Washougal. The highlight of the excitement is a special race within the 450 races, where the top placing two-stroke 250 rider has the opportunity to win a substantial pot known as the “Bounty.” Initially posted by Moto memes on Instagram, the Bounty has gained significant support and currently boasts a prize pool of over fifteen thousand dollars. Additionally, if the leading two-stroke rider happens to be on a KTM, Gas Gas, or Husqvarna, they’ll receive an additional five thousand dollar bonus.
So far, prominent riders like Carson Brown, Matt Burkeen, Jerry Robin, and others have already committed to competing with their two-stroke machines, and more are expected to join in on the excitement. This event has sparked curiosity, with some wondering if it might become an unofficial addition to future Washougal weekends or even pave the way for the return of the beloved 125 two-stroke dream race.
