San Bernardino, Calif. – November 2, 2010 – Glen Helen Raceway will be hosting the 2010 MTA World Vet Motocross Championships on November 6-7, and excitement is building over the imminent clash between 2009 World Vet Champion Doug Dubach and challengers like Ryan Hughes, Ron Lechien, and Steve Lamson. Racers will be competing for a $2,000 purse in Saturday’s 40+ event, and a $6,000 purse in Sunday’s 30+ Pro main event.
Dubach and Hughes battled for the Pro class title during last year’s World Vet Championships, with Dubach claiming victory in a stunning upset. Hughes had won the first moto by a significant margin, and was well on his way to taking the second before a flat tire took him out of the race. Hughes’ inability to complete the second moto left Dubach in the clear to take the moto-win and the overall victory. Hughes will be back with a vengeance for the 2010 races, and will be setting his sights firmly on Dubach in Sunday’s 30+ main event.
Hughes isn’t the only racer that Dubach will have to contend with during the weekend’s races. Two time National Champion Steve Lamson will also be competing in Sunday’s 30+ event, and MXdN winner and 1985 125 National Champion Ron Lechien will be among the racers battling for the 40+ title. With competition this fierce, this year’s World Vet Championship is certain to be full of excitement.
