Budds Creek MX, just outside of Washington, D.C. was host to Round 6 of the Lucas Oil/AMA Pro Motocross Series. Budds Creek MX is one of the more popular tracks on the circuit with decades of Pro Motocross History and host of the 2007 Motocross of Nations. Torrential rainstorms plagued the D.C. area in the days leading up to Round 6 of the Lucas Oil/AMA Pro Motocross Series which made for a muddy and challenging track. Qualifying practice was cut to just a single session and K&N supported CycleTrader/Rock River Yamaha’s Alex Martin was 11th fastest (2:22.038) in the 250 class.

After the gates dropped for the first moto Alex Martin nearly grabbed the holeshot on his K&N equipped Yamaha YZF250 and rounded the first lap in second position. Martin moved past RJ Hampshire on lap 2 to secure first place, and began logging some of the most consistent laps of his career at the front of the pack. Martin built a strong lead and was unchallenged throughout the majority of the race before his brother Jeremy Martin passed him with three laps to go. Alex stayed close and was able to move back into the lead on the final lap when his younger brother stalled his bike in a turn. Alex went on to take the moto win which happened to be the very first of his Pro career. It was all smiles for Martin and the entire K&N supported CycleTrader/Rock River Yamaha team as they celebrated their first victory together at the podium.
