Bad Girl Jessica Patterson Wins 5th National ChampionshipTuesday, August 28, 2007 | 2:50 PM
The most accomplished rider in the history of the WMA, Bad Boy Power Drink / Honda of Houston / Fox Racing rider Jessica Patterson, won her fifth AMA / WMA Pro National Championship on Sunday, August 26th at the Steel City Raceway in Demont, PA.
With nothing to lose, and a desire to end the year in style, Jessica Patterson lined up with her WMA competitors for the second moto late in the afternoon. The track was now dry and rough, and the Sunday crowd was psyched for the final moto of the 2007 WMA Pro Championship. Ashley Fiolek, making her pro debut, grabbed the hole shot, with Jessica close behind. After a few laps, Patterson made it by Fiolek in the double-double section at the top of the track to take the lead. Patterson, with the championship already in hand, put the icing on the cake with a first place finish in the final moto of the 2007 season.
