Racing action is back after a weekend off, and timed qualifying has wrapped up here in Washougal Washington, after the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship landed in the Pacific Northwest for round eight of the 12-round series. When the dust settled, it was Germany’s Ken Roczen and Washington native Ryan Villopoto who sat atop the leader boards by setting the fastest lap times of the day.
