Jessica Patterson is unwilling to relinquish her championship hopes. After breaking her hand before Red Bud, JP$ still managed to tough out the Buchanan, Michigan, track salvaging valuable points. While the guys raced Millville, the WMX series took a break before returning to racing this weekend at Washougal. During the short break, Patterson repaired her hand, but by no means was she 100 percent when they lined up on Saturday. In true moto fashion, JP$ shook it off and rode to 2-8 finishes, retaining her small points lead of Tarah Gieger and Ashley Fiolek.
Honda Muscle Milk's Tommy Hahn looked strong all day long at Washougal. He set his tone early in the day by posting the fastest lap in the first 450 practice session. Good starts and consistent riding garnered him seventh place in both motos. His luck, or lack thereof, has followed him closely over the last few years, but T.Hahn has remained resilient, and his performance at Washougal is proof positive of that.

MIke Alessi showed off some 2013 JT Racing gear. Although the logo treatment still screams retro, the colorway of the kit as a whole is a step toward more contemporary design.
