WSMX adds “Winning Form” Bonus award at WMX AMA Women’s National MX Championships

WSMX founder Debbie Matthews is passionate about Women’s Motocross.  So passionate in fact that she was one of the original founders of The Women’s Motocross League (WML) which met with the AMA, NPG (National Promoters Group) to create the first ever AMA Women’s Professional Motocross Championships held in conjunction with the Men’s AMA National MX Championship Series in 1996.  The WML was later rebranded as the WMA and sold to MX Sports in 2009.  Under Debbie and Elaine’s leadership, not only was a series born, but the series continues to flourish.  When Matthews left the WML in 2000, she founded WSMX-Women’s School of Motocross and continues to give back to the community helping riders along the way, and creating opportunities for growth and development.  One of her first riders she worked with was now 2x AMA National Champion and 2x X-Games Gold Medalist Ashley Fiolek, along with a host of other top 10 Women pro and Amateur racers.  Her latest support includes Jacqueline Strong National #10, Danielle Sawaicki and Heather Lockwood.  Debbie wants to continue to see Women’s MX grow and in 2011 instituted the WSMX “Winning Form” Award, of $100 per round, given to the top Women’s Pro finisher at each National sporting the WSMX logo in both motos.  The first reciepiant of the award was WSMX rider Jacqueline Strong at Hangtown via her 5th overall, while the award for Freestone is on the way to Tatum Sik who also finished 5th at Freestone.
