MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – MX Sports Pro Racing and Moto-X 338 in Southwick, Mass., have announced that this season’s Moto-X 338 National on June 29 will be the final round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, to be hosted at the legendary sand track.
Moto-X 338 President Diane Peebles Pittello will step down as promoter of the fourth longest running round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship and officially retire after 35 memorable years as an integral part of one of the most storied venues in motocross.
“Unfortunately, we were unable to reach terms with the landowner to maintain the event at the facility,” said Peebles-Pittello. “The support we’ve received from MX Sports Pro Racing has allowed us to bring the New England area the best-of-the-best to the ‘Sandbox,’ with the finest motocross athletes on the planet considering this a destination event for many years.”
This season will mark the 35th year that the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will visit Southwick in its road to crowning a pair of champions in the 450 Class and 250 Class. During its illustrious tenure as a fixture on the championship schedule, Moto-X 338 has been the site of many of the sport’s most memorable moments while also producing two of the sport’s greatest heroes in John Dowd and Doug Henry who each called New England home.
