Trying to recall an old track map I have somewhere of the original MX338 Southwick track..... the Washboard, the Frog Pond (as Ezza mentioned), the Skyhook, the Camel Hump(s), and the Hole are the features that come to mind. Buckley Berm was named later but it was always his.

Duane’s half pipe
Lucas oil drop

Only the drop has been around since the 80s, wasn’t even named till recently. Rest are more recent.
I thought FLY 150 was going to be a signature section but that was taken out. That was a cool jump that few would do.

Dirty dozen
bonzi table top
camel humps
the pro section

I can't remember what that section after the bonzi table was called, something highway I think. Two long straight sections with a 180 connecting them.

Washougal
Horsepower hill
Learches leep - gone took out RC on the rmz
Chuck sun jump - gone
Catchers mit - gone used to be after the chuck sun
Pitchers mit - the turn before the triple named so because it's smaller than the catcher's mit it replaced.
Hillsboro hoops - gone was a small 6 pack where the ant hill sand section is now.
The road jump - named because its where the road for the powerline was and you jumped over it.

The starting line - unofficially called lazer gate
