Bend, OR (January 24, 2008) – Women’s Motocross Association (WMA) is pleased to announce the 2008 AMA/WMA Women’s National Motocross Championship schedule that includes two new venues for WMA Pro Racing.
The 2008 WMA Championship will consist of all six events being held on the same weekend as the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship presented by FMF including new rounds at Freestone Raceway, Wortham, TX and MX 338, Southwick, MA. This year’s series will also offer an equal number of races on the West Coast, Central states, and the East Coast in effort to broaden exposure and maintain reasonable travel patterns for the racers.

The six uniquely challenging National tracks will make for a very demanding and potentially thrilling championship.”
