MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (May 19, 2014) – A highly talented field of 250 Class competitors will line up this weekend at Glen Helen Raceway to begin the 12-race journey through the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, and at the end of that journey a new champion will be crowned. With 2013 titleholder Eli Tomac, of the GEICO Honda team, having moved into the 450 Class for the 2014 season, the door is now open for any one of a number of top title contenders to claim the vacant number one plate. It all begins this Saturday, May 24, with the Red Bull Glen Helen National in San Bernardino, California.
Among the favorites will be a pair of teammates at Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki in Dean Wilson and Blake Baggett, both of whom were the 250 Class Champion in previous years. Scotland-born Wilson captured the 2011 title in what was his second season as a professional, but has since suffered through an unfortunate run of injuries. He enters the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship healthy and ready to win again in his final year in the 250 Class.
