MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (July 1, 2022) – The 50th Anniversary of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, will continue its one-of-a-kind Independence Day tradition as it returns to action for the fifth round of the 2022 season. Michigan’s famed RedBud MX will host one of the sport’s most storied traditions at the KTM RedBud National, as American motocross’ celebration of the summer’s biggest holiday will commence on Saturday, July 2, with live broadcast coverage on MAVTV Motorsports Network and NBC Television Network in addition to live streaming on the new “MAVTV on FloRacing” channel, Peacock, and MAVTV Plus.
For the second time this summer “The G.O.A.T.” Ricky Carmichael will bring his wealth of expertise as the sport’s most successful athlete into the broadcast booth, joining host and lead commentator Jason Weigandt as All-Star Analyst. No rider achieved more in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship than Carmichael, who amassed 10 consecutive championships and 102 career wins. The Florida native set an unprecedented standard for the sport that will likely never be duplicated and left a lasting impact on how riders approach their craft, which now serves as a foundation for success for the modern era of motocross athletes.
