Carmichael breaks into truck racing at Red Bud


Ricky Carmichael is known as the greatest motocross racer of all time.  He owned Red Bud, but he moved on to NASCAR's truck series. 

However, now Carmichael is combining the two sports he loves for a return to Michiana. Ricky Carmichael is trying something new this weekend at Red Bud. 

A down right superstar in motorcross, Carmichael will take part in his first ever off road truck race. 

Carmichael said, "I'm used to 2 wheels, but my goal is to continue to get better."

Carmichael feels right at home at Red Bud, a place he's had so much success at over the years.  He hopes that can help him out this weekend in a truck. 

"The fans here at Red Bud are great.  This track has done so much for my career, I love coming  here," said Carmichael.

Carmichael insists that he's just an average guy, putting his pants on one leg at a time. That may be true, but he is the one with the nickname G.O.A.T.

For anyone looking to win tickets to the weekend's competition, watch the FOX28 morning show Friday.
