Wilson managed a fourth in moto one ahead of Honda’s Wil Hahn.

In the second moto of round four of the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Championship, the Southern Maryland MX fans cheered  Barcia, a native of Ochlocknee, Georgia, to a second place overall on the day as the talented field of international stars looked to dominate the Americans. Rattray made a valiant charge late in the race but had to settle for a third place overall. Texas rider Wil Hahn and Yamaha’s Broc Tickle finished third and fourth respectively. Wilson’s win continued the streak of four different winners in the first four races of the 2010 pro MX season.

Mitch Peyton’s Pro Circuit circus leads the National Championship points chase with Christophe Pourcel twenty-five points in front of Rattray in second and Wilson one point back in third. The solid second place finish at the popular Budds Creek track moved Justin Barcia into fourth overall for the championship a single point in front of Michigan’s Broc Tickle and Oklahoma’s Trey Canard.
