Bend, OR (May 15, 2008) – The Women’s Motocross Association (WMA) announces today that the 2008 championship features an all-new race weekend schedule that will showcase the WMA racers during the primetime Sunday program of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship presented by FMF. AMA/WMA Championship rounds will take place at six of the AMA men’s national events and the new schedule has the WMA riders competing in their second moto on Sunday afternoon with moto one taking place on Saturday, bookending the men’s program.
