Sunday Sunday Sunday The AMA Motocross Pro Nationals come to town.

Father’s Day weekend is not just for dads at Budds Creek racetrack.

Tens of thousands of motocross fans gather to see the top riders from all over the world compete
for the AMA Motocross Championship.  This year will be a special year as it is the last year that
fans can see the Greatest of All Time, or the “GOAT” as Ricky Carmichael is referred

Carmichael has taken the overall win at Budds Creek for the last ten years and he is going for his
100th overall win outdoors.  This is a major feat for a rider in a sport with a season that is only
12 races long.

Even though Ricky is running a limited season, do to his retirement, he leads James “
Bubba” Stewart in points coming into this weekend. James, who many say is the fastest man on
the track, hasn’t been able to show it yet this season against Carmichael.

Will this be the week?

But there is more. The Lites class may not be the premier class in motocross, but it is the best up
and comers of the sport.  Watching Ryan Villopoto, the Aussie, Ben Townley, Ryan Dungey, and Josh
Grant could be like watching Ali, Frazier, Forman, and Tyson all in the ring at once this weekend.

For those of you who are going out to Budds Creek tomorrow, The Bay Net got a little sneak
peak of the action as the big guns rode in their qualifying heats this afternoon.
