See you at Washougal August 23-25, 2019.



Click here to see what’s happening all weekend.


Nearly a decade ago, a few friends were sharing stories and drinks over a campfire on a beautiful Pacific Northwest summer night. Dirtbike fans from the very beginning, the friends looked back on their own history of motorcycle racing. They talked about the past, the present and they looked to the future.

And then it happened. The dream was born. It was time to bring 125s back to motocross racing.

Now in year eight, the 125 Dream Race is back at Washougal MX Park.  We have built the 125 Dream Race Experience including a Show & Shine with prizes, live music Saturday night, The Shift Hole Shot Challenge, an evening BMX Bike Race cruising along the famed Washougal Whoops, a full day of two stroke racing,  and finally the 125 Main Event. The event will conclude with our one-of-a-kind podium celebration, where thousands of dollars will be given away to lucky participants.
