Motocross: Win a VIP Day with Carmichael


2011 AMA Motocross

AMA Motocross fans can register for a chance to win a Monster day with 15-time AMA National champion Ricky Carmichael during the weekend of Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas on October 15, Feld Motor Sports reported Thursday.

One lucky winner and a guest will enjoy an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas and spend the day as a VIP honorary pit crew member of Carmichael’s race team at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway followed by a VIP experience at the Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium, including premium seating, a track walk and a behind the scenes look at the live SPEED television broadcast.

Carmichael, who will be joining SPEED host Ralph Sheheen and color commentator Jeff Emig on the broadcast, promises that this will be the ultimate fan experience.

VIP Monster Energy Cup experience includes:

  • VIP premium seating / pit passes
  • Monster Energy Cup track walk
  • Behind the scenes look at the live SPEED television broadcast
  • An assortment of Monster Energy merchandise
  • One-year supply of Monster Energy drinks

VIP honorary pit crew member experience includes:

  • 2 autographed Monster Energy crew shirts
  • Meet and greet with Carmichael
  • Attend driver’s meeting
  • Pit and garage passes
  • Pit, garage and transporter tour
  • Photo with Carmichael at the truck on the starting grid
  • Ability to watch the race from pit road and spend time on top of the team’s “Pit Box” during the race. (This is the equivalent of being in the dugout for a baseball game or being on the sidelines for a football game.)

Ricky Carmichael says: “This is going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity for two very lucky people, and I’m pumped to be part of it. The Monster Energy Cup is going to be an unbelievable event. Monster Energy and Feld Motor Sports continue to raise the bar with amazing ideas to energize the riders and the fan base.

“I can’t think of a better venue to hold such an incredible event than in Las Vegas. We’re rolling out the red carpet for two lucky people. Hopefully, we can kick the weekend off with a win in the No. 4 Monster Energy Chevrolet Silverado at Las Vegas Motor Speedway before we head over to Sam Boyd Stadium to watch the best riders in the world race for a million bucks!”

To top the experience, the winner will receive an autographed jersey from Carmichael and a gift bag from the Monster Energy Cup, including a year supply of Monster Energy drinks. Fans can register at the official website of the Monster Energy Cup:

The unique hybrid track will consist of supercross/motocross terrain and will have a tremendous motocross-style influence, making it unlike any other stadium race in the world. This track will be the perfect blend of supercross and motocross combined and created into the ultimate battleground. The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse with the winner walking away with a $100,000 check, and for the “first time ever” $1 Million will be paid to a rider that wins all three main events.
