MX Sports Pro Racing and Washougal MX Park organizers have announced the 43rd Washougal National will feature a “Military Appreciation Race” on Saturday, July 20, during Round 8 of the 2024 Pro Motocross Championship.

This event will honor both veteran and active-duty service members for their sacrifices.

The Huffman family, Washougal organizers, will partner with the Veteran Motocross Foundation to include all service member enthusiasts. Highlights include an F-15 flyover, a Blackhawk flyover, and a commemorative veterans’ lap with a full 40-rider gate of service members.

“The Washougal MX family is honored to host the Military Appreciation Race,” said Ryan Huffman, Owner of Washougal MX Park. “We look forward to supporting veterans and sharing our love for motocross with the help of Veteran MX.”

The Veteran MX Foundation empowers veterans to leverage motocross for physical and mental recovery. They will host a special all-expenses-paid experience for a military family from Kentucky at the Washougal National.

“Veteran MX Foundation is grateful for its relationship with Washougal MX Park,” said Bobbie Casteel, Board Member of Veteran MX Foundation. “This race provides an opportunity to uplift our military members, raise awareness of their challenges, and fundraise to support our mission.”

On the racetrack, teams and riders will honor service members with custom-designed graphics and gear representing all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.

“When we decided to host a Military Appreciation event for the 2024 season, we chose an event and organizers passionate about our service members,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “Ryan Huffman and his family’s relationship with the military made them an obvious choice. We can’t wait to see it all come together.”
