Ashley Fiolek Takes First Moto in AMA/WMA Women's National Motocross from Wortham

WORTHAM, Texas (June 7, 2008) -- American Honda/Red Bull/Alpinestars' Ashley Fiolek took the opening moto win in the AMA/WMA Women's National Motocross Championship Presented by Kawasaki at the Monster Energy Freestone Motocross National Presented by Yamaha, Kicker Audio, and Berkey's Plumbing.

Last week's winner, Fiolek blasted out of the gates and grabbed the Meterman Holeshot Award with American Honda/Honda of Houston/Fox Racing/Bad Boy Energy Drink's Jessica Patterson in tow. A great head-to-head battle ensued with Fiolek edging out Patterson by half a bike length for her second moto victory of the season. Suzuki/Shift's Sarah Whitmore rode a solid race to bring home third.

"I can't believe I led wire-to-wire, this is great," said Fiolek. "Jessica (Patterson) was riding really well and it made me have to work that much harder to stay in front."

The final moto of AMA/WMA Women's National Motocross kicks off Sunday's action at 10:40 a.m., just prior to the opening ceremonies of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship Presented by FMF, which kicks off at 12:30 p.m.
