WMX Season Finale to Take Place in South Carolina

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (September 6, 2018) – The Women’s Professional Motocross Championship (WMX), an AMA National Championship, is excited to announce the rescheduled dates for the Jessica Patterson Classic in Traveler’s Rest, South Carolina for the weekend of October 6-7, 2018.

The Jessica Patterson Classic was originally scheduled for the weekend of June 30 through July 1. However, while running the amateur races and the WMX division races on Saturday the weather took a turn for the worse. As the rain fell, flash flooding conditions were created, and racing was forced to cease operations for the day. The rain continued to fall, and after assessing the situation the following day the event was unfortunately forced to cancel.

The Jessica Patterson Classic will become a three-moto format with practice taking place on Saturday, October 6. Then on Sunday, October 7, the day will start with practice/timed qualifying at 10 a.m., followed by moto one at 12 p.m. moto two at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. showcasing the third and final moto of the 2018 season.

The Women's Professional Motocross Championship heads to South Carolina for the rescheduled Jessica Patterson Classic on October 6-7.
