One more win for Carmichael – Steel City on Labor Day Weekend – 
would earn him his second-straight Monster/Kawi Triple Crown of 

CARLSBAD, Calif., (July 3, 2006) – Monster Energy-backed Ricky 
Carmichael gave the massive crowd at Buchanan, Mich.’s RedBud 
Outdoor National MX facility what they came to see on Sunday – the 
greatest motocross racer of all time topping the world’s best 
competition to take the second of the three-round Monster Energy/
Kawasaki Triple Crown of Motocross.

“Two down, one to go,” said Carmichael of the coveted $30,000 
bonus award he won last year as well.

The fast Floridian’s performance was as masterful as they come, 
taming the long, legendary RedBud track to the tune of a 1-1 
performance for first place overall. With the effort Carmichael 
extended his points lead over Chad Reed to 30 points after five 
rounds of racing (242-212).

Next up for Carmichael is the July 16th Unadilla National in New 
Berlin, N.Y., Round Six of the 2006 Toyota AMA Motocross Championship.
