Here’s a SPEED report about the current AMA Motocross Championship after Round 8 in Washougal.

The big news in the motorcycle video is that Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450F rider Chad Reed has dropped out of the series to undergo treatment for chronic fatigue. Also newsworthy, Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider James Stewart is expected to return to the MX racing scene in two weeks for Round 9 in Unadilla.

This report further talks about the dominance of the current series leader, Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450 rider Ryan Dungey. The 450cc rookie and reigning Supercross champion swept both races at Washougal, which was his 12th moto win of the season.
