    Washougal was exactly the result Ryan Dungey needed in order to keep his title hopes alive. Trailing Oakley teammate Ken Roczen by 24 points heading into the weekend, Dungey won both motos, while Roczen took two thirds. The win – Dungey’s 30th of his 450 Class career – takes a 10-point chunk out of Roczen’s lead for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship title, with three rounds remaining in the 2014 season. “Today was just about coming in and not worrying about the championship. There’s a lot of racing left [this season],” said Dungey, who won for the sixth time at Washougal. “We just tried to put out our best effort and we did that. We got great starts and Eli [Tomac] kept us honest in that second moto, but I just really tried to put the hammer down and extend the gap. Fortunately, we did that. I love it here [at Washougal] and this just feels awesome.”

    It was a big day for Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship rookie Eli Tomac at Spring Creek. After taking his first career moto win in the 450cc class by a 16-second margin, he followed it up with a second consecutive moto win and his first 1-1 sweep. “Today was a tough one the way the track was,” said Tomac, who has finished on the overall podium in each of his four career starts. “Going into the second moto I knew I had to get out there and get a good start. We ended up getting the holeshot then the red flag came out and I thought to myself ‘is this really happening?’ Luckily enough I got another one. [Justin] Brayton was right there, but after that I was just hitting my marks and I felt really comfortable.”

    Despite having to start from pit lane, Marc Marquez rallied at the German Grand Prix in Sachsenring to win his ninth race in nine starts in 2014. The 21-year-old Spaniard began the race with wet tires to cope with the light rains, but by the time the warm-up lap ended, the rain had stopped and he and his Honda team opted to change to his slick-tire bike. The majority of the field made the same tactical decision.
