Motocross legend Carmichael has tough, but fun first day with PRO Light trucks


Motocross superstar Ricky Carmichael was back racing at Red Bud Saturday. Instead of competing on two wheels though, he was in an off-road truck for the first time.

"It was a pretty cool experience racing trucks for the first time," said Carmichael.

For a guy that dominated dirt bike racing, Carmichael admitted it was both tough and exciting to try a different type of vehicle.

"You know, this is some great racing," Carmichael said. "The competition is unbelievable, they really know what they're doing."

Carmichael finished 12th in his PRO Light debut and wasn't pleased with his performance. However, he understands that with all new experiences comes a learning curve.

He's looking forward to more races Sunday at Red Bud.
