2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Specialty Awards
The Ricky Carmichael Hard Charger Award and the Oakley Bomb Fastest Lap Program acknowledge riders at each round of the season for their spectacular efforts. The Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot Championship is brand new to Lucas Oil Pro Motocross this season and tallies the holeshot winner in both classes at each round this season, awarding a bonus to the rider who earns the most points at the end of the season in each respective class.

The Ricky Carmichael Hard Charger Award
The RC Hard Charger Award is entering its fifth season. Named after Ricky Carmichael, the most winning motocross rider of all time, the award recognizes the one competitor at each of the 12 rounds of the championship who overtakes the highest number of his fellow racers in one of the four championship motos between the 250 and 450 Classes.

The award is a testament to “The Greatest of All Time” or “The GOAT” and his never-give-up attitude over the span of a career that warranted 10 Lucas Oil Motocross titles and 102 wins – two feats that will likely never be duplicated. All recipients of the RC Hard Charger Award are given a custom-designed trophy.

The Oakley Bomb Award
The Oakley Bomb Fastest Lap Program is designed to present a unique challenge for the 2013 season. The Oakley Bomb program will provide a different twist by recognizing the rider who sets the fastest lap of practice in both the 250 and 450 Classes. Each rider will receive special Oakley Bomb trophy, specially designed by the brand.

As the season wears on, the total number of Oakley Bomb awards a rider receives will be tallied into a final season total. The competitor with the most awards at season’s end will be presented with an Elite Oakley Time Bomb II Swiss Automatic Watch.

The Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot Championship
Championship points are tallied over the course of 12 rounds in both the 450 and 250 Class, where each Moto 1 holeshot winner gets one point and the Moto 2 holeshot winner gets two points. If the same rider holeshots both motos of the day, that rider would get an additional bonus point for a total of four points, thus creating a mini-championship inside the series championship. At the end of the season, the rider with the most points in each class will be the winner. The final payoff will be a $25,000 check for the 450 Class winner and $15,000 for the 250 Class winner.
